I live on ten acres of forest with a few domestic and numerous wild creatures. Along with creating an ever-growing inventory of books, both fiction and nonfiction, short stories, and articles, my writing has appeared in hundreds of online and print publications. I have received numerous writing awards and grants, most recently a Willamette Writers’ Kay Snow award for “Grounded Angels.” Other awards, grants, and acknowledgments have included an SFPA award, CCLM grants, National Endowment for the Arts grants, a inclusion in the PEN Syndicated Fiction project, and numerous others. Thank you for your interest in my work. Your support helps me care for ten acres of natural forest, its flora, and all its resident fauna. The creatures and I thank you!
