Welcome to my online home! Originally from rural South Dakota, I live in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where I write non-fiction and fiction, blog here and at Psychology Today, 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.
As a professional freelance book indexer for over 20 years, 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.
