Unpublished Work: I am happy to share my unpublished pieces, individually by request, until I decide to formally publish them, so as to maintain their eligibility for other competitions, where prior publication (including on my own website) would disqualify them from winning. If interested in perusing any of my written works, please email me or send me a request.
