In Brief . . .

I spent 46 spectacular years in Alaska before moving to Washington State's beautiful Olympic Peninsula.  During those years, I earned a graduate degree in English as well as degrees in history and education.  While teaching writing courses at the University of Alaska, I modeled class assignments by writing along with the students.

My stories and essays have been published in Seqribblers Gone Wild!, Volumes 2 and 3 of In the Words of Olympic Peninsula Authors, and Life on the Margins and Other Stories.  Right now I'm working on a novel as well as a collection of short stories, essays, and longer novella.

Other than writing, my time is divided into reading (too much), cooking, boating, creaky-knees hiking, and gardening.
