Up for air — New stories and a manuscript!

Well, I have a pretty good reason for not posting during this past year and change. I’ve been intensely working on the manuscript of my nonfiction book about Salinas gangs, thanks to my Steinbeck Fellowship at San José State University.

The good news is I’ve finished the draft of the manuscript well ahead of my own deadline of June. Now on to fact-checking, smoothing the prose and all that fun stuff (I am one of those strange writers who actually enjoys revisions).

I have also written lots and lots of related articles for the Monterey County Herald and even won a couple of awards, all of which I’ll be describing here over the next few weeks.

Kind of strange to be back in the world again, but good.
