A new novel, entitled A Great Fullness, is forthcoming. Currently at work on a memoir about my late son Francis and our experience as a military family during the past decade of American war. Excerpts have appeared in Rathalla Review, The Whirlybird Anthology of Kansas City Writers, and New Plains Review. When I'm not writing, I serve as the Director of Development for the Sierra Club's Kansas Chapter.
