Foxtale is a husband, father, grandfather, a retired credit manager of a steel supplier, and now, due to closed programs, 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 Amazon Books and Barnes & Noble. Recently Haiku Journal has published several of his poems. 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.
