This is my online home for all things writing.

First, a bit about me. I am a retired social worker and now a writer. I love to cook, bake, and read. I’m the co-owner of Five Feline Farm.

At my core, I am passionate about building new things from random parts. That may sound odd, but let me explain.

In the kitchen, I use raw ingredients to create a meal. Nothing excites me more than using fresh-from-the-garden ingredients to make a beautiful meal.

On the farm, I fabricate functional new things from scraps of wood and hardware salvaged from other projects. For example, much of the wall covering in the on-farm Mercantile is from cedar boards that previously served as garden plot edges.

When I write, I use words, concepts, and emotions to compose stories for entertainment and education.

As a beautiful quilt comes together from bits of fabric, I am constructing a tapestry of life. I hope to inspire you to invent your own.

Let’s do this.
