Escape of the Unicorn: A Medieval Play and Modern Poems
GAINESVILLE, Fla., April 22, 2009 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- A troubadour waits out his death sentence locked up in a tower room of a castle.

Sunwall's verses have been one of the stronger contenders in the poetry contest of the Writer's Digest magazine.
