UC Berkeley Lunch Poems!


Well, after years of saying no way, I took a chance at my first poetry reading. However, keeping with the event’s history and tradition, I didn’t read one of my own. I chose to read two favorite songs by Pearl Jam, as their songs are poetry to me.

Video to come, if it’s not too terribly embarrassing! :)

New Release!

It’s live, people, it’s live!

In pursuit of the goal to learn the ins and outs of independent publishing, I’ve taken the first step, finally. Check out the first release from Noruda Publishing, The Quest For A Warrior – Love Poetry Collection. Currently, it’s only available for all the Kindle devices or its various applications, but coming soon to the other retailers.

Check it out from my Author Central page, and send me a comment if you like!

2014! Where Have You Gone?

Is it the end of May already? Wow!

Sadly, no Pearl Jam Fall tour for me this time, but the muse is still alive and well in my world, as the latest obsession flows from Scottish bagpipes to The Fugees!

Just popping in to let you know there’s been family stuff happening, but writing is continuing through the chaos and a book will be up on Amazon in June! Can’t go into too many details yet, but something will be live soon.
