The Rochester Public Library has graciously offered to host the February Writers Night. We will meet in the Community Room at 6PM on February 1st.  We’ll have a double-feature that evening, myself and the very talented Jen Decker. Each will have 30 minutes of the night. There will be an open mic to follow, but we need to put the room back in order and vacate no later than 8:15PM.
I’m so excited to be featuring again in a few weeks at Pat O’Brien’s Writers Night. Some of the pieces I plan to include are: “Blood,” “Stories,” “44-47,” “11 Minutes,” “Forbidden Words,” “Book Burning,” “Frozen,” “Our Orange Ozymandias,” “Change,” “Dissent is Patriotic,” “Lump,” “0-9,” “10-19,” “20-29,”and “30-43.” I’ll have others ready if we have time.

From weddings, to centerpieces for the holidays, there is not an event for which these arrangements cannot be tailored. Miniature wax fruit floral arrangement is a non mechanized process in which handmade, modeling clay dough, is low-fired and the resulting fruit is wax dipped by hand, then arranged and combined with other materials to form a truly unusual form of floral art.
