Profile Information

I have been dabbling in writing since 1982 as a journalism major at U of O - I dropped out, but I'm still a duck at heart.

I tried my hand at poetry in the '90s, took a stab at screenwriting in the 2000s, and switched to the less restrictive novel format in the 20-teens. My first novel, set in the French Revolution is still in my drawer awaiting a rewrite from the title page to The End. Following that experiment, I collected a library of how-to-write books - about three dozen at last count.

In 2010, I launched Mistakes were Made, but it ran aground shortly thereafter. It told a tale of a botched drug deal that sent a grizzled hitman after a young man with a bag of stolen money. It was very roughly based on "Smuggler's Blues" by Glenn Frey. A couple of years ago, I revived the Mistakes project and posted it on Next Big Writer in April, 2021.
