I always wondered what I would be when I grew up, never anticipating that I never would.


Background Information

I always wanted to be a writer but was unwilling until my middle fifties to make a fool of myself. A 12 year long Dickensian schooling experience, that horrifies all who hear about it, but delights all who survived it, has fed my imagination and stoked my innate irreverence. A. Conan Doyle, A. Christie, P. O'Brien, O'Henry, Aristotle, Bacon and The Bard: all these have been swirled into a soup in which I happily simmer. But it was James A. Michener who sat with me for an hour once long ago and told me his story that seemed to make mine possible. I am fascinated with how people organize themselves to get things done, so politics, human error, concupiscience, and the elegant way mere mortals ascend above their natures to do remarkable things moves me. A lifetime as a organization analyst and designer, a formal education in policy from Harvard, and my own minor service in public office, and an eclectic life all feed the themes of my stories. I mean to entertain playfully and inform painlessly. Some folks seem to think I manage it.

Accomplishments

The minor pantheon of my accomplishments are mostly irrelevent to my writing career, so I'll just report I have published my first novel and persons other than relatives are buying it.

Additional Information

I am appearing on radio shows across the country, promoting Laguna, my novel. Never without an opinion on the issue du jour, I offer a blog that draws inspiration from "Common Sense" and it is called AmericanSense.com
