Satire Sunday: Publication Day
A small-town newsrag, in the pixel age, Much like a unicorn, was strange and rare. The revenue to justify each page Was calculated with the greatest care. Then came the week - for once a week was all The readership could justify, in costs -- When just one a...

Mab Mittel strode beside a tiny plot Of grain of unknown origin. The seed Had blown into her hut. She'd found a spot To plant it on the sly, where none would need The space. She watched it grow, her careful eye And most discerning nose, both found it sweet....

This would be a damned near perfect read if it contained any other Doctor/Companion combo. As it is, it's merely pretty good. Well worth tolerating the Tenth Doctor, anyway.

As Kleo floated, patient, with her pole, Awaiting, from line's end, that special tug That said she'd caught a squirrel or chipmunk, whole, She daydreamed, watching as a caddis-bug Lay waiting for its dinner, too. It struck Just as a pebble hit her on her he...

Doctor, Doctor: Mark Morris' FOREVER AUTUMN
Sweet Jeebus, there's a lot to like about Forever Autumn. A lot! Like, it would be a great seasonal read, a fun horror novel, all on its own, without its being a Doctor Who novel. But, sigh, it's not only a Doctor Who novel, it's a Tenth Doctor, Doctor Who ...

Story
Tagline
The Suppertime Sonneteer, with many other ridiculous projects coming your way soon!
Introduction

I write a lot of nonsense in iambic pentameter and occasionally in prose, some of which I even share with the public. I am also a sometime comics critic and comics script-writer. I am a big risk-taker when it comes to  comics so following me on any social media you choose is a good way to find something new to read!

Bragging rights
Just published my first ebook, a curated collection of Suppertime Sonnets, and it reached as high as #10 on the highly competitive (snort) Amazon Kindle bestseller list for 20th Century American Poetry (even though all the poems were written in the 21st Century - did I mention I'm also a time traveler?)
