Me on my last day of work at my desk at the newspaper. Before I moved up to reporting, I wrote numerous personal-experience stories in the feature section. Now I do most of my writing at my home computer, and on my AlphaSmart (above), and in the numerous notebooks I scribble in.

Just published: My research into The Harder Courage, in the December 2019 issue of the Cowlitz Historical Quarterly.

Other published works, in addition to my newspaper writing:

The Tale-Teller, short story in the anthology The Healing Heart: Families, ed. Allison Cox and David Albert, New Society Publisher, 2003. I have granted permission to retell my story to storytellers in many parts of the world, and one even translated it into German. (You may read both versions under the “Storyteller” page.)
