It has been said that every life deserves a novel. A gracious sentiment recognizing that everyone has a story to tell. Nowadays, it may be more appropriate to say that every life deserves a website. This is mine. Some of the information here expands on and supplements what is in my published tales. Other stuff is just something I find interesting and want to share. Some of what you will find is described below. Each section also includes some recommended readings.

  • Plunk: A brief biography and all the general administrivia of life and a website, such as: book signings, readings, and contact information
  • Tales: Summaries of my publications and information on how to obtain them
  • Tails: Information and commentary on all kinds of animals 
  • Twigs: Information on the plants, such as: the role the plant kingdom plays in our lives and in our world, and tips on growing and using specific plants
  • Travels: Guides to some fascinating and interesting places to visit, and reflections on the journeys and adventures - both big and small - that we take
  • Tastes: A sumptuous buffet of things - recipes, music, movies, art, etc. - to tantalize all the senses
  • Tomfoolery: A hodgepodege of things I find humorous and entertaining - some of is even oddly informative

Explore and I hope you enjoy!
