This site provides an opportunity to share my prose and poetry with a wide and varied audience while gaining some much needed feedback. On these pages you'll find links to my novels, short stories, personal essays, fictive memoirs, poetry and visual arts.

Come on in, look around, and perhaps you'll find something that you like. If you have comments and constructive criticism, send me an e-mail. I'm always glad to hear from other writers and readers. And ... if you find something you like, and decide to copy or print it, please read my Rights Notice first.

A lifelong writer, I funded my habit by tapping an eclectic array of jobs, from lab tech to arts administrator, from exploration geologist to desktop publisher, and from vernacular engineer to, finally, Web manager for the Utah Department of Environmental Quality. Now retired, I've continued writing, focusing on exploring my past through prose and poetry, and can now dedicate time to locating quarterlies and journals willing to accept my work. Check out how I became a writer.

Recent Activity

This is where I get to brag about recent publications and awards and new additions to this site. Hopefully more will follow..


eBooks are electronic versions of books that can be viewed on a computer screen. Publishers, libraries, and retailers can now produce, manage, and distribute eBooks to anyone on any computer running Microsoft Windows or Mac OS software. Because Adobe eBook software is based on the widely distributed Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) technology, eBooks can be delivered with high visual fidelity. To find out more about producing and reading eBooks visit the Adobe Web site.

The manuscripts found within this site have been produced using this technology to make your online reading experience as convenient as possible. To view these documents you will need to install one of several free Acrobat Readers (if there is not already one installed on your device of choice). Check the Adobe Web site for current options.
