What’s happenings in my world of writing?

Detailed information on current projects, including initial chapters or excerpts, can be found on my website. Just click the Sandv’s Pen icon at right.

I feel strongly about the terrible turn of events in U.S. politics and in fact, society in general. When the telltale signs of what was coming became apparent in 2014, I wrote Ickee Mushta in hopes it would have some minor influence. Couldn’t have been more minor as it turns out. More recently, the serial novel Emma McEwan was intended to campaign for a method of recovery. Again, minimal audience. Also, hard to keep up with the political tides. Now I’ve stepped back and taken a general approach to provide a fictional reflection of this dark era in America. It steals shamelessly from both of these works but American Eclipse stands alone in its own right.

For many years I have worked periodically on a novel dealing with the ancestors on my mother’s side who came from both sides of the American Revolution. A captain in the British Army eloped with the daughter of a sergeant in the Revolutionary Army. They were married on the island of Manhattan. The trials they must have faced intrigue me. Much work remains on From Revolution Born.

The idea of a collection of short stories and vignettes written over past and future years is attractive. The collection is growing and recently some stories fictionalizing milestones in the immigration of indigenous people into the Americas have been added.

I will treasure your thoughts after visiting my website.
