I am consolidating most of my social-media platforms (“Bye!”) and will no longer be posting updates and stories via Facebook. But I’d be tickled pink if you kept up with my work, which you can after joining my Substack newsletter. As a free subscriber, you’ll receive in your email inbox my newsletter and previews of new stories. As a paid subscriber, you’ll receive my newsletter and access to new stories. Paid subscribers also have access to the archive.
If you subscribe now, and as a thank you, I will make you a *free* subscriber, which means you’ll receive content that *paid* subscribers will also receive. I will keep this option in place for new subscribers until 31 January 2022. If you know anyone who might like to read my Substack content, please forward this post or mention it: they can take advantage of this option too. Readers, whether they stay for a while or a short time, are a reason why I write and share my work.
I love sharing my stories (fiction short and long) and updates for readers. My fiction focuses on Americans and American culture. I believe that extraordinary stories are about ordinary people and that Main St. and the local are more vital than Wall St. and the global. My interests in the Western humanist tradition; classical learning; and science also influence my work: curiosity, creativity, and clarity.
Homo sum; humani nihil a me alienum puto. [I am human; nothing human is alien to me.]—attr. Terence (trans. Maya Angelou)
