Issue #04 of the exquisite Vine Leaves Literary Journal has posted. If you are unfamiliar with Vine Leaves, now is the perfect time to discover what you’ve been missing: art, photography, poetry, and vignettes, from fierce to funny, from visionary to raw. Treat yourself to this magnificent celebration of word and image. Included in this issue, “Private Correspondence,” a brief vignette from my unpublished novel A TWIST OF HATE about regret and our inability to chose when and whom we love.
