I am excited to write that Book 5 in the Mind’s Eyes Series is finally published! I have several poems included in this collection and collaborate with world-class writers and photographers such as Helle Gade, Maria Savva, Darcia Helle, Kim Stapf, Martin David Porter, J. Michael Radcliffe, Julie Elizabeth Powell, Thomma Lyn Grindstaff and Maria Haskins.
The idea was to look at photographs of people and interpret them creatively. I think one of my own favorites was a picture of man walking down a road. It reminded me of a Robert Frost poem, The Road Not Taken and I wrote a kind of tribute:
If I could travel down that lonely road…
I might ask about his suicide that never
was, his lover’s quarrel with the world,
two roads diverged with burning paper
and an accidental fire
long walks where green was gold
before her heart attack,
knowing way leads onto way,
has it made the difference?

Maria Savva has a new novel available for pre-order! I’ve collaborated many times for the Mind’s Eye Series with her and this is definitely a book you want to read.
‘No one’s ever come out of that house alive…’
What lurks behind the door of 8 Goldfern Road?
Are you brave enough to step inside?
By entering the sinister house, George and Glen become entangled in a dangerous battle of wills.
“The Spider” is a story of obsession, infidelity, and broken dreams.
This darkly humorous mystery will appeal to fantasy and romance readers as well as those who love to hate spiders!
Maria Savva has a new book of short stories coming out on March 18th and it’s currently available for pre-order. You will definitely want to check it out. Let’s face it, the Ben Ditmars seal of approval goes a long way 🙂
“Human nature is not neat and predictable.
What makes us betray a loved one?
Can isolation lead to irrational behaviour?
Why do other people’s lives always look more appealing?
Ordinary people living ordinary lives, torn apart by regret, remorse, and deceit. We’re all stumbling through life together. This collection of stories shows you the Lost and Found among us.”
Last week I traveled to Dallas for an annual book signing known as IndieVengeance Day. We get together, the indies and I, once a year and hang out. We also sell books: small books, big books, books that climb on rocks. Okay, none of them climbed rocks, but a couple have ghosts, and that’s just as good.
The journey started in the air…
But quickly involved books and stress cubes.
The books and their Davros. Muahaha.
Scott’s fortune cookie predicted a photo bomb.
And there was this yummy croissant.
The Justice League prepared to fight evil… and sell books.
After Red Lobster. Don’t we look full?
I found this steer at the airport.
My last view of Dallas.
It was an incredible event filled with my favorite people on earth. Once more, my deepest thanks to Amber Norrgard for all the hard work she did setting everything up.

It is my pleasure to share the cover reveal today for TRIPTYCHS. I worked with some incredibly talented writers and photographers on this project. We each wrote stories and poetry based off images.
The collection is called “Triptychs” because each image has three different stories from three different writers.
My two poems, Think Green and Dry Dock are included. The photographs by Helle Gade and Martin David Porter which inspired my words are both uniquely beautiful. There is a contrast between natural and rustic that helped provide divergent perspectives. I can’t wait for you to read the result.
You can find the second book in the series, Reflections, for sale here.
And the first, Perspectives here.
