What do you write?

fiction: 2 novels and numerous short stories; poetry: I stopped writing poetry about 25 years ago; previous to that, I wrote more poetry than fiction.

What's your favorite subject to write about?

I'm not sure. It changes all the time. Currently I am writing about different types of friendships, from superficial to passionate.

Who is your favorite author?

A tough question after years of reading. I love Yeats, but I seldom read him anymore. The old cliche rings true: Shakespeare.

If you could meet any dead writer, who would it be?

Yeats to make me sing; John Kennedy Toole to make me laugh.

What do you hope to achieve in your work?

Stuff people want to read. My novel, Into the Water, is self-published on Kindle. I would like to improve my fiction writing and get some short stories published.


My teaching, my family and my writing are my passions.
