~ A REVISION of my first book, Concerti: Psalms for the Pilgrimage, is ready to be published in 2021. The new manuscript is at DLD Books
For some years I wanted to revisit the journals and notes I kept during my summers in Europe so that I could write a revision of that first book. I worked on it for the entire year and in early December I sent the revised draft to DLD Books where it will be edited for the new, revised edition.
The new edition will feature actual journal entries and some back stories and photos that inspired the stories and poems in the book. The new book will be published in 2021.
“6” of my latest poems are scheduled for publication by Proverse (Hong Kong) for Mingled Voices5 Anthology.
