Additionally, my short story fiction and poetry has appeared in various online and print magazines. Likewise, I have self-published my personal narrative, Echoes From An Unexamined Life, and two historical fiction novellas. Over the years, I also have held a colorful variety of jobs, including archeology technician, bartender, delivery driver, dishwasher and substitute teacher.
