The following stories will be posted to his website ,Oziian.com or www.WizardWasOdd.com in the near future. “The Calamitous Attitude of Kat Katitude” is about teenage and young adult cats living together as roommates. Another is a bedtime ditty – “No Such Thing”, “Fast Food” is a picture book without words about a slow spider trying to catch fast insects, and the list goes on.

In 2012, he and his wife Janet concluded a busy week with a night on the town.

With the input of the readers first two books, he intends to create the third book of the trilogy by 2020. This series will be a celebration of the 120th year of the first printing in 1900 of the original “Wonderful Wizard of Oz” by L. Frank Baum.
