  • About Me

    I've been a writer for roughly twenty years, and a writing coach for four. (Being a coach pays better.) At the moment I'm finishing up a novel (Playing With Fire) and polishing up a play (Dos Coyotes). In whatever spare time I put together I mess around with photos, friends and shamanism.

    Why do you write?

    Who knows? It seems that whenever I contemplate the idea of not writing so much, something rises up inside of me that says basically, "Well what would be the point of living then?" I'm not sure if I write because I want people to read (or see) what I write, or perhaps because I was a successful writer in a past life and I can't seem to get out of that rut. I do seem to enjoy writing, so I'm more than happy to keep doing it. The river of creativity seems to flow close enough to my property.

    Any favorite authors? Books?

    R Brautigan, R Chandler, W Gombrowicz, E Hemingway, F S Fitzgerald, W Stegner, C McCarthy, J L Borghes, H S Thompson.
