Kurt served twenty years and four days in the navy and “retired” as a Senior Chief Petty Officer in 2003. He traveled much of the world as a sailor and, aye, he’s got some stories to tell…
Nowadays, he and his family are moored happily in a house on top of a windy and rolling hill in Southern Pennsylvania where he slogs mightily in an effort to record these hard-earned stories of his.
He is the author of four published works — one novel, two books of poetry, and one little book of inspiration. His latest book, a thriller entitled THE GOOD KILL, will be released on July 1, 2019, and is available for pre-order here.
In the summer of 2015, he adapted his short story Leave into a screenplay. In October 2016, Leave was filmed and produced in Los Angeles with an amazing cast and crew. The short film premiered at the LA Femme Film Festival in October 2018, and is now available for all to stream at Amazon Prime.
Kurt is not a fan of the soul-sapping effort writing takes, but he does rather enjoy blogging – or, as he likes to say: Surmising with aplomb and nary remorse. Here, he likes to wax poetic, overshare poorly lit photographs of his rather large yet loveable Plott Hounds Aurelius and Zeno, and every now and again, if he can muster up the courage, venture naively into commentary on all our pretty yet petulant planet’s perplexing problems, political and/or otherwise.
A word of caution: Kurt attempts to bribe all new visitors here into subscribing to his infrequent and rudderless and some may argue pointless newsletter, one he affectionately calls Newsletter Love, by offering each new subscriber a complementary copy of his short story collection LEAVE: And Other Stories Short and Shorter.
