I am a community-builder, author, and educator leveraging the power of storytelling to promote equality, justice, and humanity’s reconciliation for peace and unity.
Storytelling is a social force.
In many ways, we are the stories we tell ourselves and that we tell about each other. Beyond providing an entertaining story for readers, I hope to contribute to changing the narratives we tell ourselves and that we tell about each other. I want to offer what I can in the way of breaking us out of the mental boxes made up of the stories we tell.
I hope that my stories will bring hope when we are wearied with humanity's monotony of pain, inspire active doubt when we're told that every human problem is insoluble, strengthen our resolve when everything around us seems to be shaking, cause a smile when the ugly face of despair is leering at us, and stimulate us to reexamine our own cherished assumptions underlying the stories we tell. My heroines and heroes do not yield to the overwhelming power of tyranny, but serve the cause of equality, justice, and freedom for all. They speak aloud when malevolent forces try to crush their minds.
I tell stories about active love for the weak and powerless; valiant and courageous collaborative action to advance the justice, equality, freedom, and respect that must underlie any lasting unity. As an author, I’m drawn to eccentric, unexpected characters: those who surprise because they hear a distant galaxy, see a different music, create their own song or story rather than get hooked on a soundtrack; the child who has her or his own ideas about how the emperor is dressed; the lunatics and rebels who tell stories on the boundaries.
Wood Cows think differently. Join the adventure!
I have been a faculty member and administrator in higher education. Teaching broadly in the liberal arts, including creative writing, my professional publications include educational materials, poems, and 28 stories for young readers.

I seek to write unusual stories that take readers to worlds they never imagined--a whole new ride.
