    “Missing Rib,” A Short Story, is Now Available at the Kindle Store

    Andrew McCarthy thought he found his other half. His other half didn’t agree, and since their break up he’s been moping around his apartment reliving the past. That stops the day his best friend Donald brow-beats him into being a groomsman at a wedding.

    The day is filled with events, both tragic and funny, which make Andrew think about what it means to have family; to find love and to lose love. He’s forced to confront what it means to find someone who fits him, like a missing rib.

    So, over the last few months I’ve done a bit of press stuff for “Eating Kimchi and Nodding Politely.” It’s all been pretty good – minus an early morning, and cloudy-headed, interview I did for Night Vibe with Pinnacle & Elliott. Here are some excepts from some of those good interviews and guest posts that I’ve done. Thanks for reading :).

Hi. This site is pretty self-explanatory (I'm a writer, and this blog is a marketing tool. Yay marketing!). You’ll find a few creative writing posts, a few stories, and some other great things that I can’t jam into any category. You’ll also find writing resources here and weekly posts that you can share (Yay sharing!).

Whatever I post, I hope you find it entertaining. If you do, let me know. Oh! And before you leave don’t forget to check out my books/ebooks, EATING KIMCHI AND NODDING POLITELY and MISSING RIB. Both are well rated, are available on Amazon.com and are guaranteed to make you smile.*
