In February, I recorded an interview on my works and writing with “Write On Four Corners“, a program with KSJE 90.9 FM, the Farmington (NM) National Public Radio station.  The interview will air on March 7, 2018, at 10:30 a.m.  The interview covered a wide range of topics concerning my writing and my writing plans for the future including upcoming work.  Be sure to tune in.  The program was hosted by Traci HalesVass, retired assistant professor of English and Creative Writing at San Juan College in Farmington.  The interview will be available on podcast after the broadcast.

To celebrate this, on the day of the broadcast, I am giving away e-copies of all my works available on Amazon Kindle.  These include A Tale of Hell and Other Works of Horror, Alien Embrace, The Scent and Other Stories, Click, Diabolical:  Three Tales of Jack Thurston and Revenge, and Nocturne: Poems of Love, Distance, and the Night, a callous and disinterested lover.  Follow this link to my Amazon Author’s page to find out more about each work.
