• Adventures in Writing

    Hi!  Lots has changed over the last month.  I’ve moved states, bought a house, started a new job, started coaching 3 volleyball teams, started teaching a youth creative writing class and…found a little sister – 2 months old/2 lbs – for my Oscar (cat) who lost his brother one month ago. PHEW! I am loving Sacramento.  It is not how…

  • 2016 Has Ushered in… Fun and Creativity

  • Cibola National Forest
