Bones II, Published by JWK Fiction

Bones II, published by JWK Fiction, contains a short story of mine titled, "Brushing Off the Voices in my Head".  Being included in this anthology was special to me because my 12 year-old daughter had a poem included in the first book of the series.

I have been published in many JWK anthologies recently, and James Ward Kirk is simply an amazing man to work with.  His insight and personal approach is simply amazing.

"There are bones of the dead everywhere, and they’re sharp. Under your feet as you walk across your yard, in the cement of buildings, under the foundation of your home, in the coffee you drink, in the food you eat. Science estimates 100 billion human beings have lived and died. There are bones everywhere. There are skeletons everywhere, from universities to unnamed places we really don’t want to know about. We love skeletons as we are walking skeletons. There’s an old phrase about skeletons in the closet. What if the skeleton in your closet is real? When we look at strangers, friends and family we fail to see the skull behind the face. And the eyes of skulls are dark and deep. These works of art, poetry and short stories cut deep. To the bone."
