This blog is my portfolio of artwork, a journal about my process of making art...and the things that I have no words for...

This one is about my book! The other art that I do.


On a whim I entered my little ghost story, Dusty Waters, into the 2009 New York Book Festival, I had absolutely no high expectations, but I figured, it wouldn't hurt to go through the process...everything is a learning experience...so wtf, right? I've kept my eye on my email box...waiting...expecting to see something official announcing the winners...but got nothing. So I went to the website...today is the big day down at the Algonquin Hotel in NY...so I scrolled down the line of names and titles of books, and it caught my eye in the honorable mention for Fiction...then I started to scream!!!!

Oh happy day, oh happy day!!!!

I scared every cat in the house, even the fat tubby tabby lifted his head and made a grunt as if to say "Get a hold of yourself!" and poor Max tucked into his chair wondering if I had lost my mind...

No I haven't...I'm only happy, not crazy.

Oh happy day, oh happy day!!!!
