I’ve been a wanderer, and a journeyman newspaper pressman. I’ve spent years rescuing animals and learning from them. They’ve taught me that life does not have to be so hard, if you go with the flow and not against it.
My life revolves around writing and my family, which includes, of course, my animals. Two car accidents in the mid-nineties changed my life. I resented it at first, until I understood I had simply been put on another path. It was not an easy one, and continues to be a challenge, but I accepted it, and I learn with each step I take.
I write because I am compelled to pass on knowledge. My first book, Circles, is more than just a story of family, or of the people who first settled in the Americas. It is a story of spirituality and the simple humor of everyday life, but also of the fear of the unknown. Life presents us a path; how we choose to navigate that “circle” is up to us.
