about me

I am a novelist, poet, and climate activist.

Born in the paper mill town of Rumford in Western Maine, I spent my childhood in Upstate New York, Wisconsin and New Jersey. I was off in a park or forest every chance I got, climbing the tallest trees I could find or ice skating alone on sections of the old Raritan River Canal. Sorry Mom.

Since those days, I have lived in Washington, DC, New York City and Cincinnati. There are few parks in any of these cities I have not explored. Home base is now the north shore of Massachusetts.

I’m an enthusiast of nearly every outdoor activity with the exception of those that depend on ropes, toe-holds or parachutes.

My novels and poetry frequently reflect my experience of nature in contemporary or urban situations and vice versa.
