I was born in Quitman, MS on a farm and moved to Biloxi, MS at the age of 12. I attended Biloxi High School (class of '54) and attended Loyola University at the age of 55 where my professors first praised my writing ability. I have been writing since.

I grew up in Kalispell, Montana and spent my early years water skiing at Flathead Lake and hiking around Glacier Park. Colorado College is my alma mater, and after college in the Sixties it was off to Berlin, Germany for four years, where I spent my time organizing G.I.s to oppose the Vietnam War, as well as checking out East Germany and traveling around Europe. After this fascinating experience in which I was introduced to radical politics for the first time, I moved back to America and worked in auto factories and a copper refinery in New Jersey, trying to coax workers in a revolutionary direction. Much of the background material for my novel derives from these years.

I became a minimalism groupie in my first year of college (1972) when I read Living Poor with Style by Ernest Callenbach. (We called it "simplicity" back then.) I've been a student of it ever since and began writing books on the subject in 1998. In 2010, I finally escaped the rat race - forever, I hope. "Let the rats have it!" I say. "It's no fun anyway."

I live and write in a small town in California. For the most part my erotic fiction is just that–fiction, having little to do with my real sex life. I love sex and believe fantasy is the life-blood of good sex. Given the opportunity in real life, would I do all the things I talk about in my stories? Absolutely! Would I be bold enough to initiate them? Maybe not but I can dream, can't I?
I try to make my characters believable. That said, it is fantasy, and fantasy characters may tread "where no man (or woman) has gone before."
I hope you enjoy my stories. Comments and positive reviews are always welcome.
