Hi there. I figured it was about time for a new personal site, and it seems you’ve found it. I’ll keep my about page updated with any new publications or recognitions of note, but your best venues for keeping an eye on what I’m up to are your choice of social media platform.
“Alone in the Cold”, appears in the ANALOG May/June, 2021 issue. Congratulations on this publication AND on an excellent story! Hope to see more from this universe. Excellent. -Ken (I have subscribed to ANALOG nonstop since 1982)
Thank you, Ken! Very appreciated and I hope to have the opportunity.
Just thought I’d add an accolade! I just finished “Alone In the Cold” as well — after being drawn into the story, I read it in two sittings! (Unusual for me as a writer — I usually feel guilty reading because I SHOULD be writing!
I was also curious, as a Minnesotan (Brooklyn Center), I was wondering if you were at one time a Minnesotan — your description of freezing feet, whipping snow, and crossing in a blizzard certainly have the FEEL of someone who’s done that! (NOT that there aren’t other places to experience such a thing!) but you do have Richard think, “…back home in Minnesota…”
Thanks for a great read! I, too, look forward to reading more from you!
Hey Guy! Thanks very much for the kind comments. I’m glad you enjoyed it!
I’m actually from Vermont originally so I sampled a fair few cold walks there. That said, I spent a winter in MN (Eden Prarie) so I did get to experience next-level cold there. Certainly unlike anywhere else I’ve experienced, and I’ve been to northern Sweden!
