The tales we tell about ourselves help us to envision ourselves and find a place in a complex world. As the site’s tagline declares, Veereads is the fruit of a relentless devotion to showcase stories and imagery that engage the spirit and imagination. The site reviews a wide range of works – poetry, essays, short stories, novels, comics (graphic novels), memoir, inspirational and religious – that feed a fascination with stories as a foundation for civilization and reality. The reviews are frank, fair and balanced, and directed to “pull your coat” about works that are often underexposed. Look  at the sidebar for Recent Posts and the Reading Fee policy.

I am a storyteller, author, editor, blogger, and retired university professor of Creative Writing. For information on my books and other literary pursuits, check out The Golphin Collection. Now in Central Florida, I still teach every now and then, but write most of the time. Questions?
