I am so fortunate to have found editors and readers who get what I’m trying to do. Hopefully readers, too, but I’m trying not to be greedy with my fortune.

You can read some recent work in the following places:

Passages North blog series, Writers on writing.

Thin Air magazine republished one of my favorite essays: Bird by Desert-light.

A lovely bit of roadkill over at Guernica’s flash series, mirrored on PEN/America’s flash series.

A book review on the ABA’s blog (and also in the summer issue of Birding): Joy Kiser’s America’s Author Audubon.

And just before I split for New York, I wrote up a bit of news on Wyoming’s Sage grouse problem for Science: Conservationists question sage grouse protection plans.
