on connection

in this month’s article in southwest writers’ publication, southwest sage, entitled on connection (page 5) i’m embarrassed to say i got a bit nostalgic and preachy.  not my intent by any means, but… sometimes it just happens.

the article came from a place of genuine passion and i hope that shines through.


on imitation

this month’s article in southwest writers’ publication, southwest sage, takes a look at the work of my favorite writer, ken bruen, and addresses imitation of highly-stylized writing in on imitation (front page).

i would never venture to attempt what ken bruen does, but it was great fun to pick apart his style.  in my estimation, he is the master of the noir genre.
