In 2001 and 2002, I taught English at Beijing Foreign Studies University.  During the time between terms, I had a chance to travel.  I decided I wanted to record my experiences while living in China and write a book about those days.  It is just about finished and am seeking a publisher in the near future.

I am an artist who writes as a avocation.  I have lived on rural Whidbey Island in Washington State for fifty years.  I am a local painter and you can view my work at here. From time to time I write and my wordpress blog is here.  Be sure to check them out to learn more about me and what I'm up to. I'm working on several books (unpublished).  I did publish a cookbook called The Artist’s Palate.
