About

Welcome to my creative writing zone, a place to share my experiences in creative writing – from books and articles, to short essays and poetry, to creative writing and existential pennings.

This site is dedicated to my favorite teacher, Jack Arden Christensen, 1927-2006. Thank you for the encouragement, sincere critique, and the wonderful sense of humor and empathy you had for your students and fellow human beings. Most of all, thank you, Jack, for being my teacher.
