Profile Information

For 65 years I have lived on just this one planet trying to keep my eyes pinned on the truth. As a young fellow I indulged in some abysmal writing I boldly called poetry. It is to my great advantage that none of it survives. The urge to extend my education beyond the torment of recurring dreams of high school pushed me into a community college at age 40. That turned out to be great fun. It did not result in a new career because, well, who wants to be a paralegal anyway? The best thing I got from the experience was a reawakened desire to write. What most surprised me was the poetry that started to pop into my head and which seemed to find acceptance when I printed it out and showed it to people whose opinion I valued. I won an award for a poem I submitted to our campus literary journal, Thoughts Beyond Insanity. That encouraged me to continue and I have not stopped since. I have been published twice in the literary journal, Harrisburg Review. I also had work published in The Villager, a magazine published by a women's club in Bronxville, NY. There are a few others I have lost track of over time. My prose efforts include several years of writing Adventures In Antiquing which discusses the buying and selling of antiques which was a trade I practiced as an antidote to my short and unsatisfactory stint as a paralegal. I have another blog, Seaward Adventures, which is about ”Wind, Water and Sailing as Soulcraft .” Currently, I work for a manufacturer of luxury yachts. My small contribution to building boats for billionaires is fashioning cabinet parts from expensive hardwoods. My night work involves poetry to keep myself only just as sane as I need to be while writing a historical novel set in the American Civil War.
