Hudson Valley Writers Showcase Friday January 26, 2018 2-3 pm NY (7-8 pm UK) WGXC Radio Guests: Faith Green & Nancy Klepsch This Friday I make my radio hosting debut! I know I’ve crashed other folks’ shows but this time I am taking the board myself (eek!). Thanks to the folks at WGXC for giving…

Prints & Punk Rock

Another zippy trip down to Connecticut to see my pals. Great to see Marko, Bilokur and of course the Queen of Everything, Stephanie Johnson. After all these year, I finally caught up with Peter Crowley, too! Can’t believe we’ve never actually been in the same place at the same time. Had a faboo time, Agent…

News, a Wish and BitchBuzz

Criminy: it’s December! How the time has flown by this semester, even though I haven’t been in class. My sympathies to my colleagues knee-deep in exams and grading. I know how it feels — and couldn’t be happier that I am not. Sorry! But it’s true. NEWS:  It’s a Curse: Drunk on the Moon, Book…

Soundcloud

A new way to spread sound — well, newish. It’s been getting a boost, mostly via other social media outlets and DJs. Of course now that people like me are starting to use it, the DJs are looking for something new. Way to suck the cool out, eh? My page at Soundcloud features things you…

My first stop in Willimantic was to surprise Perilous Cheryl, but the surprise was on me. I stopped by her office…

Podcast: Dear Friend

Slouch on over to Radio Wombat for a new podcast, “Dear Friend.” Is this podcasting going to be a regular thing? It just might.

New Book Store!

You may remember her from my radio show, Prose at the Rose, where she talked about things like being Ronald Reagan’s nurse when he…

Prose at the Rose: Fulwiler

On line now: the latest interview and reading from Prose at the Rose, my podcast on local writers and writing at the College of Saint Rose radio. My guest this episode is colleague Megan Fulwiler who reads a wonderful essay on the challenges of buying a house as a single woman. We have fun talking…
