White Square Books

A few miles down the road from Northampton, Massachusetts you'll find its neighbor Easthampton, and in Easthampton you'll find a great little bookstore called White Square Books. And in that great little bookstore you'll find a bit of counter space reserved for local authors, and on that bit of counter space reserved for local authors you'll find my novel Freight chilling beside Rachel Glaser's Pee on Water.

I like that.

You live here or close to here.

You'll like White Square Books.

Maybe I'll see you there.

Maybe I'll see you here.

5K for Farmland

Good times running the 5K for Farmland. Weather was nice and crisp, a little cloud cover, the colors were popping, the feet were slapping the pavement alongside the Hadley common and then they were slapping the hard-pack alongside Hadley farmland. Superstar Christy Crutchfield (who also rocked the spot at Monkeybicycle recently) tore up the course with me. We walked away with our bag filled with fresh vegetables, a pound of grass-fed beef, and delicious cookies. I think everybody won today. Mmmmm, grass-fed. Get outside.

More Library. More Fun.

Freight has now made a home for itself at the Worthington Public Library in Worthington, OH. I think that's awesome. I think you should go check my book out. CHECK IT OUT.

Friday, October 14, 2011


Freight is slowly making its way toward a library near you (hopefully). Right now it's at the Monroe County Public Library in Bloomington, Indiana.

You live there or near there?

You should go check my book out.

Ha. Get it?

'Freight' review at Specter Literary Magazine

Many thanks to Mr. Martin McCaulay for his generous and thoughtful review of my novel Freight at Specter Literary Magazine. Here's a snippet:

"Beautifully told, heartfelt and funny. Some parts go straight for the heart but never in sentimental or melodramatic way. And we can learn from its wisdom. David Hume said 'Be a philosopher; but, amidst all your philosophy, be still a man.' This is that story."

Read his full review HERE.

An additional thanks also goes out to Martin for catching (and appreciating) the sneaky Grease Stains reference in Freight. Good eyes.

With my light striking
 the bike path in front of me, he looks like an alien

at my side, strange nose and haircut. He looks like a mad scientist
at my side, springs and cranks

jiggling and popping. He looks pale at my side. He looks
happy. His breathing is hard.

I wish him a happy October, then press on,
crushing the colorful and crunchy underfoot,

light slashing the evening, a blade
of fearless
