Summer's sultry heat bakes our senses. Our artwork resonates with the shimmering yellow of the Valley of the Sun, the baked brick of the Canyon de chelly, the exotic pyramids of Egypt. Visions... More > reflect the layers of the Grand Canyon, the striped boats of Ventimiglia Italy, the pinholes of a vampire's kiss. Poems bring to life azaleas, tea leaves, lazy summer days and shellin' purple-hull peas. Stories draw in the drama with scrambled eggs and a camping trip by the Pacific.Real life stories add even more poignancy with kind stepmothers, the acceptance of mistakes, the love of flying. There is the trauma of a grandmother with Alzheimer's. A woman celebrates her 40th birthday with a fire circle while wives discuss what women want and deserve. We give equal time to menopause and PMS, two decidedly feminine situations.The power of summertime infuses us to the end, as evidenced by "Thunder" -The crash far away;a mild timpani remainsrumbling me to sleep.< Less

Dogs and Disturbance By William Edmund Evans
Paperback: $16.98

Dogs and Disturbance is a story set in blank verse about living with dogs. What we see isn’t what dogs can smell or hear, nor is what we care about the same, except ironically it is. Living... More > with dogs lends this perspective. It’s absurd to claim we know everything when we are so ignorant about what these other creatures intuitively understand. Temple Grandin suggests dogs may have taught us about life in a pack. They certainly have taught us companionship as a fundamental part of life. To a dog companionship is everything. The poems study love as a universal condition, existing between species, and individual creatures. It argues for the commonality of all life forms as opposed to claims of human superiority. Species nor individual, neither can succeed by dominance, no matter how successful if it doesn’t support a deep humility for all life. The end condition of life is death for all creatures. How we meet it, and how we may help others meet it is some kind of measure of our worth.< Less

This is the second collection of poems inspired by characters, stories and locations from "The Vault of Souls", a live evening of elegant fear set in Tampa Florida during the roaring 20's.... More > This book gives guests who experienced this one-of-a-kind live piece of performance art a deeper understanding of the experience.

In "left behind: a collection of dark poetry" he explores a more diverse palette of poetic forms and finds inspiration from deeper within "The Vault of Souls"< Less

“I Give You My Words…” is the follow up to my debut book “As the Words Flow… a Collection of Prose and Spoken-word Poetry”. I wanted to go back in a sense, and... More > re-tell some pivotal stories that led to me finding my way through memoirs, short stories, and poems. I also wanted my writing to exude transparency, honesty, and duality. Sometimes we forget the stories that make us us. More often than we’d like to admit, we lose focus on being ourselves that we never embrace our ‘one-of-kindness’. This time around I wanted to start some uncomfortable, but much needed conversations. All while lending my words to the sometimes indescribable, yet universal, moments in life. And in doing so, after all the healing and reflection was done, I have evolved and so have my words… These are my words, and they still linger…< Less
