New (and subtly naughty) poem “Cajeta (Gimme Some Sweet!)” published today at Cajun Mutt Press today!!!

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.

Essay “Digging for Lost Temples” accepted for publication at Drunk Monkeys!!!

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!
