In 2002, Slips, was published in the Colorado anthology, Valley Voices: Ripples in the Streams of Life. The story is about a swimming hole and the creek which feeds it where, as children, we took refuge from the summertime heat.  An earlier look into life in the Jermyn (Calico Lane) neighborhood in the 1960s.
