The current featured article is "BREAKING THE PATTERN: ALAN GARNER'S THE OWL SERVICE AND THE MABINOGION"
This paper was presented at Mythcon 24 in 1993. It was an opportunity for me to write about a lovely little book I had always enjoyed. Years later, it had the advantage of being a rare piece of scholarship on the works of Alan Garner, which led to it being selected for inclusion in THE CHILDREN'S LITERATURE REVIEW, vol. 130.
I hope you will enjoy it!

I wrote THIS POEM when I heard about a tragic experience an acquaintence was going through. The story is not mine to tell, so I won’t go into the details here. But I will say that I was very moved … Continue reading
I’ve been a little bit out of practice composing new poems. The pieces I’ve been posting on the website have been older works. But THIS POEM was written today. It’s a challenge to walk in faith, trusting what I believe … Continue reading
