Home page:

My stories have grown out of a unique childhood in the beach cities near Los
Angeles with a set of Bohemian parents who loved classical music and literature,
sailing and history. I finished a BA in world history from UCLA just so I could take
part more fully in my fascinating conversations with them! I have also been
influenced by three long trips to Asia and my own experiences as a student of
Tibetan Buddhism studying under Lama Thubten Yeshe in the 70’s and 80’s and
more recently under the Dalai Lama and Alan Wallace. I live in Santa Cruz
California with several self-assured cats and surrounded by many fine friends. My
livelihood came mainly from work as an English as a Second language teacher at a
local community college. Semi retired from teaching now, I have been able to give
more attention to my writing and photography Several of my stories and articles
have appeared in publications and anthologies, including Best of the Sun and
Stories of the Spirit, Stories of the Heart and Nixon Under the Bodhi Tree. I have
published a children’s novel, Children’s Voyage, the Long Journey Home and more
recently a book of short stories, Buddha on a Midnight Sea.
