Heads and Tales is about writers & writing, art and particularly caricature, baseball, beekeeping, and just about anything else that comes along that I think would be interesting.

The tales in the title refers to what I just mentioned -- good stories mainly from the realms of literature and writers, but from other places as well.

The heads refers to caricatures that I have drawn. You can see those if you go to my website JPROF.COM, or if you buy my book Heads and Tales: Characters and Stories of the Famous, the Infamous, and the Just Plain Interesting.
