My Wishing Star
My poem, "My Wishing Star on a Long Ride," which appeared in Eclectica's July/August 2015 issue, will soon appear in one of their four forthcoming 20th anniversary anthologies! It's nice to have a poem make several appearances, and not just one or two. Ecle...

Your Protagonist's Mess Area
Unless your main character has OCD, everyone has an area they habitually leave in a mess. Mine is my desk. Really, any surface I can pile books and file folders on. The lie I tell myself is that the stack will catch my attention so I can follow up, but the ...

Pirene's Fountain - my poems in Vol. 8 Issue 16
I've had poetry in a lot of journals over many years, but I've rarely been so pleased to have work  alongside such a great group of poets and writers. I was talking about publishers and poetry presses with a friend this morning and we agreed that even if it...

Your Protagonist's Thought Patterns

Why You Need to Read This Now!

I recommend Matt Talbot for his expertise and compassion in this complicated and delicate area of law. Our family has had the benefit of Matt's calm and knowledgeable guidance through the process of becoming and serving as Conservators for a family member. He has guided us through the legal complexities and the personal challenges with great consideration and understanding. He's always clear and always keeping us mindful of our Conservatee's best interest.
