Write your way to a more meaningful life.

“Life is not primarily a quest for pleasure, as Freud believed, or a quest for power, as Alfred Adler taught, but a quest for meaning.” ~ Viktor Frankl, Man’s Search for Meaning

Welcome to my online home! A little about me...


Originally from rural South Dakota, I live in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where I write non-fiction and fiction, change water for my rappin’ betta fish (Marshall), read in my comfy chair, and feed the squirrels. I taught writing and creative thinking at the college level for several years and recently began a new small publishing company, Hidden Timber Books.

I have been blogging at this site for over six years and at Psychology Today for five years.

As a professional freelance book indexer, I have indexed of hundreds of titles (read my indexing-related short story, “See Also,”  published in the Spring 2012 issue of The Adirondack Review). Recently I made the transition to working for myself full-time. I’m a good boss.
