Welcome and thank you for visiting my site. Much of the writing life involves prolonged spans of contemplation, those hours spent at a desk when one idea attaches to another and then to another until something takes shape. In this time spent thinking, writers come to embrace certain philosophies about the craft, through both the labors of personal experience and the realized lessons of others. I believe the writer's job is to provoke thought and elicit emotion, and I am in pursuit of that story, even that sentence, which moves the reader to consider his or her life differently, each wanting to be better. I hope you enjoy the site and find something here that inspires.

Be well,
