Cheney lives in rural Maine (USA) on the property where he grew up.
In fact, his great (x?) grandparents acquired the land in a grant
from King George, after he stole it from the Pejepscot Indians. Fred
plays pidjin bluegrass on his guitar. Now retired, he divides his
time between volunteering at the local elementary school, a nearby
homeless shelter, and with a veterans’ project. And he writes
some. His writing is in or will appear in the Sandy
River Review, Goose River Anthology, Omni, and Parabola.
