I love writing more than anything, well, except cats. Here's two-year-old Chloe, who was a scrawny little stray, but she is doing wonderfully well now. She looks like she dipped her nose in a cup of tea, doesn't she? Her owners couldn't be located, so I took her in, and she made the pandemic isolation so much easier--as I know pets have done for so many of us.
I was a lit professor for many years, and reading and writing are my passions. As Emily Dickinson said:
There is no Frigate like a Book
To take us Lands away . . .
The land I like my readers to be immersed in for my in-progress crime novels is the fictional Bedford County along the rugged coastline of Washington State. My biographies, however, focus primarily on figures from the 19th and earthy 20th centuries.
And who knows where future writings will take us!
