About Me

Contributor Badge 5+ (197x155)I write stories about people who make their own path in life for readers who dream of doing the same.

After years of managing projects, developing software, and occasionally writing user manuals as both an employee and an independent consultant, I decided to get creative in a different way.

While cruising and telecommuting on my sailboat for six years, I transitioned into a writer of nonfiction articles about interesting places, events, and people. Now a landlubber and kayaker in North Carolina, I’m working on a novel about young Czechs who immigrate to Nebraska in 1911.

I also write flash fiction and essays on the writing life. Spare time activities include reading (of course!), horsebackriding, and taking long walks, preferably near salt water.

I’m a member of the Alliance for Independent Authors, the North Carolina Writers Network, and Carteret Writers.

I have received awards for both creative nonfiction and flash fiction. Below are some recent efforts.
