Yet somehow I became the bad guy...

The first book I authored is now a decade old…

The first book I wrote was a pictorial history I made as a paid writer for the organization.

Original Poetry: Why You (dis)sin’? (as published in Alchemy 2018)…

Poem lets Outlaw knock the dust off his byline for the first time in nearly a decade.

Mr. Man Candy has gone live across the Midwest…

I always take him with a few grains of salt. Not too much. I mean, dude’s always been on the rotund side, and he’s got a heart condition, for Christ’s sake...

These two really need to get out on the road more…

Now here's a couple of ol' boys who need to spend a lot more time behind some handlebars...

“If this nation is to be wise as well as strong, if we are to achieve our destiny, then we need more new ideas for more wise men reading more good books in more public libraries. These libraries should be open to all—except the censor. We must know all the facts and hear all the alternatives and listen to all the criticisms. Let us welcome controversial books and controversial authors. For the Bill of Rights is the guardian of our security as well as our liberty.”

                                                              John F. Kennedy
