This was my first published book (John Hunt Publishing, 2009). It is a collection of 12 heart-felt short stories. 

The stories occur in contemporary urban America; the people are the dispossessed middle class looking for meaning and purpose in a world that seems to have lost both; the themes are as evocative as the language — love, brutality, tenderness, humor, forgiveness and redemption, death and rebirth.

"This is a profound and deeply felt collection of short stories, highly recommended for those who are looking for intelligence, insight, wit and wisdom.” Ken Wilber, author of Sex, Ecology, Spirituality

The rights to this book were reacquired by me in the fall of 2016, and I have taken this book out of print. The best stories of this book will be made available at no cost on the Writings section of this website.
