Two boxers hit one small town. One of those occasions where the story and the characters were very strong, and I tried hard to live up to it.
Where I turned the instruction “go and do a beer festival” into an alcoholic quest that stands up surprisingly well, unlike the author.
A short piece for a women’s magazine about a weekend, you know, away.

A standard one-to-one sports interview, which I worked at to make as interesting as possible.
A piece about fishing, in which I don’t catch any fish. Turned out all right.
A short, inconsequential little piece about an old boxer, but it just seems to work nicely.
