Hemmingplay spent a career as a reporter and editor in newspapers and in higher ed PR when he finally settled down. Other jobs in earlier years included construction work, teaching, and a couple of small businesses.


However, the desire to write never really went away, so when the kids were grown and flown, and he had retired from the paying gigs, he turned back to writing poetry and fiction.

“The Unfaithful Earl” originally appeared in a Halloween series on
Spillwords, an online literary and poetry magazine.
