AVAILABLE NOW!!! The Cary Grant Sanatorium and Playhouse - A disgraced Hollywood starlet, Donna Darling, and two-time German Army deserter, Séamus von Funck, meet in 1942 at an idyllic Ohio home for unwed mothers—or a Nazi abortion slaughterhouse, depending on whom you talk to. Their love endures despite the efforts of a power-hungry congressman, an overzealous religious tabloid, and Donna's Hollywood past. (Psst, it includes Cary Grant.) They prevail despite Séamus being a suspected Nazi spy and America's first prisoner of the second World War—and also the first to escape.

Free AWP



Attended a free, off-site AWP (writers' schmooze-fest currently in town) reading put on by the Black Earth Institute (their About Place Journal published my No Happier State excerpt, "Sculps") and hosted by my friend Ethna McKiernan. If that wasn't enough, Linda Hogan was one of the readers. Years ago I was drawn to a poem called "The Hands" that I'd read on the bus. Literally. It was up there among the adverts for free clinics and fake business colleges. I went out and purchased her book, Savings, and--until last night--it was the only book of poetry I owned not written by someone I actually knew. A wonderful and interesting evening.

Just wish I was better at schmoozin'...
