I believe in my writing. I think there's something special about it, but every writer must believe that, or it would be impossible to go on writing. Writing is both a brutal and wonderful calling. The main problem is to attract readers, to persuade people that something really beautiful is going on here. My poems have popped out in minutes, while my books have taken years, sometimes decades to write. I feel an equal passion for both the short easy ones and the long works that have been like wrestling alligators. I love the challenge of writing novels.
I don't wear a religion or spirituality on my sleeve. I like to be more devioius, I like to be both sacred and profane. I am in what is loosely called the Spirit-Mind-Body culture. I've put in many years of practice and study. My innate modesty prevents me from boasting of my sublime spiritual achievements. I am adored by my partner and several dogs and cats. Now I need fans of my writing. I am irreverent. I have opinions about gurus, life-coaches, the whole "make your dream come true" philosophy.
We should all go for our dreams, but sometimes one can dream the wrong dream, and achieving it can be a disaster.

I write on photography for Shutterbug Magazine and have two covers to my credit.. I've won a United Nations award for environmental photography. I'm especially fond of night shots, of the beautiful sky. I've been selling my prints for ten years Now my writing is gaining momentum. A few years ago I sold a science fiction story to Playboy, and it won an award. Now my book, AVOIDING THE POTHOLES: ROAD STORIES OF A CHANGING AMERICA is being requested by agents.
