My December short story entitled Great Grandpa Carl will post Dec. 1 in the Blog section. It was difficult to write. I went for sentimentality, since it’s a holiday season story. No murders in this one. Don’t worry, I’ll be okay.


“No tears in the writer, no tears in the reader. No surprise in the writer, no surprise in the reader.” I kept that Robert Frost quote in mind when I penned Great Grandpa Carl. A few tears materialized as I wrote it. I was glad.
