Here we are already halfway through October, and I haven't posted a thing since August 29th. Part of my lapse was being out with a cold for 9 days, then needing to get out of the condo to get some badly needed exercise. Well, now I'm back, within a day or so of having my "Seiji" novel finished (1st draft), then on to editing it and sending it off to a publisher. When that is done, I think I'll take my first month off from writing in about three years. I should; I have plenty of reading to do... Continue reading ...

projects pop into my head fairly often, especially when my brain is in “create”

Art of writing
Last year I wrote a short story about a fictional Tokyo artist named Seiji Matsuda. The story finished and published ("A Rainbow Feast: New Asian Short Stories", edited by Mohammad A. Quayum), I turned to other writing projects. Seiji, however, wasn't through with me. So I set the other projects aside and began working on expanding his story into a novel about his life. It is now about half finished, and what a challenge it has been.
I'm an author, fiction writer and poet. My recent publications are "The Old Man and The Monkey," "Grandfather and the Raven", and "Bear", a story about an unusual dog and his human friend Andy, published by
Taylor Street Publishing, San Francisco. A collection of short stories, "Fernandez' Tale and Other Stories", and a poetry collection "Seeing: Collected Poems, 1973-1999", were published by Tortoise & Hare.
I love telling stories, so drop by from time to time for updates.
My publisher is Taylor Street Publishing in San Francisco, California.
