Hello and welcome to my website! A little about me: I began as a writer of nonfiction with travel and environmental articles in various magazines and weekly newspapers. My book about the Anza-Borrego Desert, All the Wild and Lonely Places: Journeys in a Desert Landscape was published by Island Press in 2000. I also taught creative writing and composition at the University of San Diego and National University. Then I worked for several years with the Desert Protective Council.
Since moving to Michigan, I’ve turned my attention to fiction. My first novel, Daring and Decorum, was published by Supposed Crimes in 2017. Details here. And I’ve just finished a post-post-apocalyptic novel, tentatively titled Ada’s Children, that I’ll be shopping to publishers shortly.
Oh, and I also write fanfiction. Find out more about all of my fictional activities here.
I’ve also been working on a biking guidebook, Mid-Mitten Cycling, but that’s fallen a bit by the wayside as I’ve focused on writing fiction.
