Excellence is the Best I Can do With What I Have Now

Leon Battista Alberti (1404–72) said “a person can do all things if they will.” I live and create by that motto. When it comes to writing I have created a series of epic length fantasy novels. That work of art is supported by woodworking, linguistics, Photoshop, Indesign, podcasting, Audible, 3D jewelry design and any other venture I care to tackle to make my stories worth listening to. With such a wide variety of experience and interests I am a fascinating author to interview and connect with. I look forward to meeting you. 

I am 60 years of age and have lived a very full life. I follow a creed that no matter what your hand finds to do, you should throw yourself at it and enjoy every minute of the experience. Don’t waste your time with complex personal plans, get moving and do something. I spent 8 summers planting trees and in the end I planted over half a million of them. I learned to keep moving, plant one at a time and go on to the next one. The same philosophy saw me create an amazing set of fantasy novels that also total a half a million words. You just keep going, one word at a time. My personal core values of Community, Celebration and Creativity are guided by my Creativity Manifesto and I create every single day. I have many personal stories that I would love to share with your listeners.

I grew up in the West, the descendant of people traveling by wagon train to a new life. Some of their determination and wanderlust became a part of me. I imagine them sitting around the campfire telling stories, which is why I became first a theatre artist, then a teacher and now a writer. They are all ways of telling stories.
