July brings heat waves and waved flags, and I’ve turned up the  heat on my summer projects: publish my new novel, Aransas Morning, and a collection of essays on the theme of community. Some of those essays come from my weekly Blog posts.

For the July 4th holiday, here is an excerpt from Grandpa Jack, my novel about a common man with an uncommon challenge: Grandpa Jack – Independence Day

And here are some more summer offerings:

Bluebonnet Daze, a short story about a Texas tradition,

Cottonwood Snow, a story set to rhyme about a journey home,

Lessons from the Garden, some thoughts about the gardens of our lives.

Thanks for stopping by!
