Hello …

Writer • Editor • Publisher

Everybody has a story to tell, whether he or she be the immigrant farm worker sitting in the field in the hot sun all day picking beans or the philanthropist whose chauffeur polishes only the side of the car facing the house. I am a storyteller. I love learning about people and telling their stories. Here I tell you a bit of my story, and I give you links to stories I have written and published about others. Now I’m a Publisher, too.
