Strange Encounter at Linnell Landing—a short story

Skaket: poetry


My writing has taken many forms over the years, from poems and song lyrics to magazine articles, short stories and two recently-published books. My poetry is mostly free verse (I save the rhyming lines for my songs), and I am fascinated by the mathematics of the Haiku form. My short stories are accounts of events in my life that I believe made good stories. The books I have written are how-to books titled Framing a House and Finishing a House, both published by Taunton Press. Both books are lo-tech, highly-visual looks at those processes. 

I am also working on a novel, purely fiction, but based loosely on my own experiences. I write as the inspiration comes, and this section of the web will include examples of each type of writing that I do.
