Dear Readers,

I love storytelling. I've written hundreds of poems and songs, performed in theater and at local festivals. I've written numerous personal essays and authored many books. My work has appeared in newspapers and publications, in printed anthologies and online.

My first published book, A Natural History of the Nipomo Mesa Region, enjoyed local success and garnered positive reviews. Fathers of Edenville was my first novel, followed by Mothers of Pine Way, A Place Called The Way, and Dreamer On The Mountain.

Welcome to my world of words! It's a place where I feel at home, where I find answers to my questions and solve important problems and issues for the day. Words are my anchor, my tool, and my art. I love storytelling. Most of all, I love sharing it with you.
