On Saturday, May 16th from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, I’ll be joining forces with “Asylum Designz” down at the Lake County Fairgrounds in Painesville, Ohio.

I’ll be selling autographed copies of my new book and my partner in crime for the afternoon will be selling her hand crafted jewelry.  if you like concrete poetry or just want to see some amazing jewelry by “Asylum Designz” please stop by.  

If I don’t see you there you can still purchase my book online at Amazon, Barnes and Nobles, or Lulu.   Just click any of the links off to the right.  We’re expecting a pretty big turn out and there will be many others selling various items as well, flea market style.   I hope to see you there.

“Signs of Life” is a unique collection of visual/concrete poems that stretch the imagination, taking the reader on a journey beneath the surface of man. From love to hate, politics to religion, the beautiful to the macabre; this book explores the many footprints left by the human race for the better, and sometimes the worse.

“Asylum Designz” features jewelry for the young and young at heart.  She designs fun and whimsical pieces from an eclectic variety of materials. If you like Kitsch, Kawaii, Scene, or Retro you will love her stuff. Asylum Designz is all about fun and retaining your childhood.  Too many people take life way too seriously and it weighs them down and ages them faster. Don’t be one of them, remind yourself everyday of the whimsy in life. Wear something fun.
