Grew up on an Eastern Oregon cattle ranch, Danang and Stanford. Raised by nuns, two older sisters, horses, rattlesnakes and cattle.

Background Information

ADAH, Ken Kesey, James Joyce, Shakespeare, Graham Greene, Stienbeck, Leonard Elmore, Van Gogh, Dashell Hammett, Anais Nin/Henry Miller and the rest. Danang, women, Stanford and animials, both domestic and wild have made me avoid humans. Or is it in my jeans? I love to read, so I thought writing would be the perfect outlet. The students at J school knew not they sold no money tree seeds inside that building. Double negatives do work, sometimes. I am the prime example. The two biggest influences in my life are a year in Vietnam with no female contact, and my love of Paris, France. I can count only two dozen or so women I have loved more then Paris. Portland is my heart but Paris is my soul. Sometimes I mix those up. I have four sisters and 5 brothers. I was never molested by a priest of a nun, but I was beaten daily by my dad, bless his soul. I love paradox in life. Proof. Loved and hated him completely. Only the drunk siblings are truly successful, but they are dying quicker.
