Books By Kenneth Weene
I love to write not just novels but short stories, essays, and poetry. I hope that my writing will evoke feelings, elicit thinking, provoke anger, and sometimes call forth laughter and tears. Here I share a variety of pieces that I hope will entertain and rouse you. See More.
Rosalyn Weene – Artist
My wonderful wife, Roz, is a gifted if eccentric artist. Some of her work is social commentary, but more of it is off-beat and whimsical. Yes, her paintings are for sale and at a reasonable cost. However, no matter how much she may make you laugh, her sense of humor stays with me. See More.
Because they matter to me, I also share pieces by some of my dear friends. By the way, if you write and want to be included in that section, contact me. In fact, no matter what your reactions to my writing, please let me know. See More.
Short Stories & Poetry
Short stories and poetry not only challenge me but also enrich me as a writer. Sometimes, I indulge in flash and even micro-fiction and other times longer stories. Some of my poetry is free verse and some are formal. To all of them, I bring determination to hone my craft and a love of the written word. See More.
