Mailing List

Sign up for my Mailing List. This contains updates on writings and other life events and anecdotes.


Poetry and writings are hosted at my Patreon site.

See the Poetry, Writings, and Doodles zine at The Words and The Doodles. This is a labor of love, which goes out by pnysical mail or as a PDF. These are paid subscriptions but I make them affordable and I do giveaways on the mailing list sometimes.

I publish poetry under my own name, and stories under pen-names. This is mostly for marketing segmentation.

For sci-fi, adventure, I use the pen name Cran Palto. See
