I have been asked to speak to a group of aspiring authors about lessons I have learned since I began my writing journey over a decade ago.

Did you once-upon-a-time play a musical instrument?  Maybe like me, you started in elementary school with group lessons and played for years in bands and orchestras before putting the instrument away.   It was predetermined that I would play the violin since my dad bought me one at the age of five months.

On the day my oncologist told us I was in complete remission after treatment for my lymphoma, my wife turned to me and said, “Do you think you could have done this without softball?” There is no way to answer that question with certainty, but there are some things I do know.   In the …more

Alaskan Bush Pilot Screws Up Big Time! That Would Be Me!

I applied sufficient power and began the careful, slow rough taxi to the very end of the short, remote gravel bar about 100 miles west of Anchorage, Alaska. The airplane lurched and staggered over softball-sized rocks as I slowly picked my way along. While the main landing gear was quite sturdy, the small tailwheel in …more
