I‘m a full-time writer of little renown. My other interests include photography, plunking away on the guitar, and solving (eventually) New York Times crossword puzzles. The beginning of this blog signaled the end of the blogging phenomenon. Next up: Dragging Facebook and Twitter to a similar ignominious end.
To pad out the text here, I will mention that I was born and raised in rural western Montana, that I’m a newspaperman by trade (who hasn’t had a full-time gig for going on three years now), that I’m trying to finish up a long-delayed history degree, and that I have been known to design simple Web sites on the side.

What else? Unaccountably, I now find myself living in Jacksonville, Fla. Don’t ask. My favorite color is blue, I’m happily married, my shoe size is 8, and if I were a tree I suppose it would be a lodgepole pine. I have written a number of short stories, most of them published, and I have written a novel that probably never will be. For the time being I’ve given up on fiction writing to focus more on brooding into the middle distance.
If anyone knows of a good pyramid scheme, I’d be interested in getting in on the ground floor.
Meanwhile, why not have a look at my recent tour of the Okefenokee swamp?
