Author's Bio

Rick Hartwell is a retired middle school (remember the hormonally-challenged?) English teacher living in Moreno Valley, California. He believes in the succinct, that the small becomes large; and, like the Transcendentalists and William Blake, that the instant contains eternity. Given his “druthers,” if he’s not writing, Rick would rather still be tailing plywood in a mill in Oregon.

He has been published in: Empirical Magazine, Newtowner Magazine, Birmingham Arts Magazine, Camel Saloon, Bamboo Forest, Stray Branch, Everyday Fiction, Everyday Poets, Torrid Literature Journal, Flashquake, Steam Ticket, Burnt Bridge, Indigo Rising, Toucan Magazine, Lowestoft Chronicle, Thoughtsmith, Rainbow Rose, Greensilk Journal, Shine Journal, Poppy Road Review, and others, both in print and e-zine

Published chapbooks: The Sea Turtle (Fiction, The Bactrian Room, http://bactrianroom.blogspot.com/, and Amazon.com Kindle Books); This Way to the Egress (Poetry, Books on Blog #24, http://booksonblogtm.blogspot.com/); and, Vietnam Flashbacks: A Personal Memoir (Literary Non-Fiction, Burnt Bridge: Those Who Served, D-Day Issue, http://burntbridge.net/, and Amazon.com Kindle Books).
