Welcome to My Blog

Since life is dynamic, I’ve decided, at least for the time being, to forgo a website and focus on my blog. I can provide all of the more static information that readers and followers expect, or may be interested in, including book blurbs and links, a little bit about me, and a way to connect. In addition, I can post changing and active content, all in the same place. So, here we go! I started out writing nonfiction, but my passion for adventure, stories of survival against the odds, and speculating about the future of humanity and our planet, soon turned my attention towards fiction. I have published eleven novels (eight still in print), over eighty travel and human-interest articles, and contributed to a travel story anthology.

May 2023 Newsletter – Is it Spring Yet?

This has been one of the coldest, snowiest Wyoming winters that I can remember. As May nears and with very few temperatures getting out of the forties, I lost my patience and decided I needed to be warm for a few days and headed to Tucson, Arizona for a long weekend.

Explore, Dream, Discover

Here’s one of my favorite Mark Twain quotes, though I have many. “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” Mark Twain
