Pine Hills Review

Pine Hills Review

My poem “Bailing Hay by Headlight” is up at Pine Hills Review, a really fine journal put out by Daniel Nester and the MFA program at The College of St. Rose. Please make your way over and have a read, and if you’re so inclined, share with others. Thanks much. Hope you enjoy.

the toast the butterI have a story posted today at The Butter, the slick new journal edited by Roxane Gay. It’s a dark little Appalachian tale called “Burning Slag.” There is Easter bunny violence. Sorry, but you’ve been warned. Enjoy!

revolutionarywarflag1I mentioned I’d post a link when my WIP excerpt went up at Revolution John Magazine. It just posted. It’s from a currently unmoored chapter in the novel I’m writing called These Damp Stones, which takes place in a coal mining community in late 1960s West Virginia. Hope you enjoy.
