January 13, 2020 – Poem “Digging for Lost Temples” appears this month at Drunk Monkeys. Took a few months but the wait was worth it!
September 3, 2019 – The brand new poem “Cajeta (Gimme Some Sweet!)” was published today at Cajun Mutt Press. While a tiny bit “blue”, it is more a fanatic love letter to poets everywhere than anything, really, for all the “ear candy” they give us (though there are also a couple more underlying narratives imbedded in there as well).
This is the third creative piece of mine that reflects bits and pieces of my cultural identity — relatively new territory for me in terms of writing, but I am starting to have some fun (and take some risks) with it. Previous pieces include the short story “When Blood Wants Blood” (originally published at Down in the Dirt – vol 164 “The Deep Woods”) and the prose poem “Digging for Lost Temples” (soon to be published at Drunk Monkeys). I have one or two more pieces to toss around in my head before pen hits paper. Looking forward to seeing what happens next.
July 25, 2019 – New essay “Digging for Lost Temples”, a self-exploration of ethnic identity, accepted today at Drunk Monkeys today (publication date TBD). Many thanks to Kolleen Carney Hoepfner (Editor-In-Chief) and Matthew Guerruckey (Founder). Very excited about this opportunity as it is the first essay of mine to be accepted by a literary publication (i.e., outside The Good Men Project). Looking forward to writing many more in the future!
