I have worked as a journalist and more recently have been turning back to the fiction writing that I enjoyed so much as a kid.

I spent a decade as a reporter/photographer for a number of newspapers including the Socorro Defensor Chieftain (Socorro, NM), The Akron Beacon Journal (Akron, OH). Being a is one of the greatest jobs one can ever have as long as you’re not in it for the money.

Most recently, I have been rediscovering how much I love writing fiction and have started a site with my daughter Jamie, who is a visual artist, to each take a look at a creative prompt and come up with our own take.
