Coming Fall 2019

Leonardo Dreams

of His

Flying Machine

The Illustrated Picture Book

Coming from Acroterion Books in Fall 2019 is the newest in their series of picture books based on choral masterpieces. The entire libretto of Leonardo Dreams of His Flying Machine, written for composer Eric Whitacre, is illustrated with sumptuous oil paintings by artist Anne Horjus based on Leonardo's journals, his imagination, and the history of human flight. 

A Silver Thread NOW AVAILABLE!

I am proud to announce the publication of A Silver Thread by GIA Music! This book is a retrospective collection of all the poetry I have written for choral composers over the last twenty years, as well as many new, previously unseen lyric poems. I would be honored if you took a look!

"This poetry bursts with color and shapes, and offers an engaging narrative which carries the reader beyond the end of the text, and into a realm of imagination... great art stays with people after initial consumption and this work is no exception! "

"His work conveys heartfelt imagery and depth. One of the great gifts of this book, in particular, is the way it pulls aside a curtain into one man's soul. In its unique originality, it speaks to the universal in all of us."

"Simply beautiful."
