Our first book was released in July 2014. I was the juror and editor of our third book, Rich Community: An Anthology of Appalachian Photographers, which was released in late June, 2015. We have recently published a unique and wonderful novel by respected author and story-teller Mary Bozeman Hodges, Deep in the Earth, released November 01st, 2018.

Ongoing: My stock photography is now represented by Universal Images Group:
From 2002 until the company closed in December of 2010, my stock photography was represented by the Omni-Photo Communications Company, in New York. Through the wonderful and very professional Omni-Photo company, I had dozens of single-image photographs published in a variety of types of publications. These good folks have gone out of business, but have transfered my images to the stock photo business, Univeral Images Group, which (since late 2011) now represents my stock photography work and has facilitated the publication of many dozens of my photographs in a wide international variety of types of publications.
