A Box Full of Trouble

A Box Full of Trouble

I got home at dusk and saw the shoe box on the steps of my Airstream. It wasn't there when I left. The hackles went up on my neck.


A Book That Will Make You Believe in Murder Again

Brash Books just published my first novel, Double Wide. I wrote the first version of it in the 1980s. What are we looking at here—more than three decades? Sounds about right.

Tragic Landscapes

Migrants crossing the tragic landscape of the borderlands leave many things behind: backpacks, jeans, food cans, empty water bottles—and sometimes their lives.

In the Blood

Deep into the 2017-2018 Theater season, we are still being served up challenging and thoughtful, funny and sometimes downright perplexing fare

Advent(ure) Calendar

Find the right event to get you in the holiday spirit.

Invisible Touch

Each Thanksgiving Day, one of Arizona's "48 Most Intriguing Women" becomes a clown.

From War to Peace

I had (and still have) an abiding love for the Peace Corps.

Musical Airs

Now onstage at the Rogue Theatre is a humorous but perplexing piece that strives too hard to be too much.

Historic Parallels

At the same time European Jews were forced to wear two yellow triangles to form a star, LGBTQIA+ individuals were forced to wear one pink triangle.

Fulfillment After Illness

Meredith Mitstifer spent years struggling with infertility issues, only to find she was naturally pregnant right when she needed to have a cancerous mass removed from one of her ovaries.

Retrospective at Etherton

The sprawling painting "Tower Bar," its 11-foot expanse painted blood red, is as big and as complicated as a Renaissance painting.

Magical Matrimony

You may not be aware that Arizona Theatre Company has sponsored a nationwide playwriting contest since 1993.

Creepy and Kooky

If you need a friendly reminder, the season of Halloween is upon us.

TMA Transformation

A striking statue of a dying horseman, crafted in fiberglass by the late, acclaimed Luis Jimenez, has long languished in a distant downstairs gallery in the Tucson Museum of Art.

Blood on the Tracks

The rescue unit flipped the lights to frantic flashing and gained speed after turning onto the highway.

Role Play

The fog rolls across the dusky moor. A once-thought-mythical beast roams and roars.

Judith Revisited

In the latter days of the Renaissance, the daring Italian painter Caravaggio painted a dark and violent canvas, “Judith Beheading Holofernes.”
