Welcome to my online home!

Head shot for blog

Originally from rural South Dakota, I live in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where I write fiction and non-fiction, blog here and at Psychology Today, change water for my rappin’ betta fish (Marshall), read in my comfy chair, listen to hip-hop and other music, and watch and feed the squirrels.

See Also Book Indexer

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

See Also Aunt Hattie’s Diaries

Every day I share historical diary entries from my great aunt’s Great Plains diaries (1920–1957) and am currently working on a book about her life and writings. Read a preview and learn more about Hattie.
