Orcas was first conceived in around 1995, and a first draft was written at that time. It then sat on a hard drive for roughly 20 years, until I was reminded of the story during a walk on the beach in Asbury Park, NJ. I found the original draft and re-worked it significantly to the form that appears here, particularly tightening the language and time-frame. However, the general themes, characters and settings remained true to the original. 

Orcas was first published in Soundings Review, Spring 2013. Eunoia Review was kind enough to reprint it in July 2013.

It can be read by going to the publication HERE.
