Saugatuck dunesWelcome to my website! I plan to use it mainly as a place to post both old works that never found a home and excerpts of new works that are looking for one. I’ll also have some book reviews and thoughts on nature and writing.

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 have taught creative writing and composition at the University of San Diego and National University. I worked for two years with the Desert Protective Council. Since moving to Michigan, I’ve turned my attention to fiction. I’ve got three stories at various stages of completion, and am writing a fan-fiction novel. Who knows, maybe it will be the next Fifty Shades of Grey?
