I am honored to have numerous essays published in this beautiful new anthology, Grit & Grace. This collection of poetry, fiction and essays is written by authors from throughout the Midwest. The pieces are featured alongside prints of beautiful, original artwork, also by area artists. Grit & Grace is available on Amazon.






I’ve also self-published a book about my Dad’s life, telling his stories and memories from growing up during the depression, serving in the U.S. Air Force and working in and around his hometown. It’s available through me by e-mail at www.ialochamire@gmail.com. Put “One Man’s Work” in the subject line.
