I’m drafting and continually revising family- and personal-history narratives. My 2023 goal is a memoir now titled Chaplain's Kid. Recently, I revisited and revised the draft of a novel, Wideman's Gospel. I will post a sample here when it's published, which will be by the end of 2022.

I began my literary life as a poet, and Google Books has a perusable copy of my first book, The Lost Body of Childhood. The Open Library has a description, with links to libraries where it's available: https://openlibrary.org/works/OL6562918W/The_lost_body_of_childhood. Used copies are listed for sale here: https://www.isbns.net/isbn/9780914278252/?tab=all
