Foxtale is a husband, father, grandfather, a retired credit manager of a steel supplier, and a former volunteer canoe docent with the state parks system. More than a dozen of his short stories have been published in various periodicals. His true story "Polka Dots and Sunshine Tear Drops" was published in the Thin Threads anthology - Stories of Joy & Inspiration, available at online bookstores. Recently Haiku Journal has published several of his poems. Ever striving for improvement, he will still accept reviews. His one regret is that the late Andy Warhol only promised each of us a few minutes of fame. Fortune would have been so much better.
