Times To Try The Soul of a Man

Tales From The Dew Drop Inne

Tales from the Dew Drop Inne” reads like a darkly humorous sitcom. The tone is both heartfelt and deliciously irreverent, showing that one does not need to hate humanity to appreciate the humor of life.   See the Book Trailer! 

Sweet & Sour

Short fiction some filled with sweetness and some filled with pain.

El Catrin

Can Father Eduardo protect Jesus? Will the Devil best his brother? What mysterious things can happen among those who believe in holy mysteries? Who is El Catrîn?   See the Book Trailer! 

Two Tales of Terror

Two stories that reach into the primordial well of terror. Who among us can laugh at death? Who can hear the strange noises of the night and not hug their blankets just a bit tighter? “Bela” and “Sometimes You Can Hear ’em”: totally different tales, but both hit the human panic button.    See the Book Trailer! 

Ashes

When I met Umar Abdul on Facebook, I hardly expected the result of this internet friendship to be a play. Ashes is the story of a contemporary Black American’s journey to Nigeria to return his father’s ashes to the land from which their ancestors had been sold into slavery. The resulting mix of cultures is at once humorous, life-changing, and filled with emotion.

Kenneth Weene Books

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.

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 reasonable cost. However, no matter how much she may make you laugh, her sense of humor stays with me.

Commentaries

When life gives us lessons, it behooves us to share the teaching. As I struggle to make sense of what I have learned, I write commentaries and essays as my method for sharing.

 

Friends Sharing

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.

Poetry & Short Stories

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 is formal. To all of them I bring determination to hone my craft and a love of the written word.
