    Favorite Quotes:
    “I will tell you what I will do and what I will not do. I will not serve that in which I no longer believe, whether it call itself my home, my fatherland or my church: and I will try to express myself in some mode of life or art as freely as I can, and as wholly as I can, using for my defence the only arms I allow myself to use . . . silence, exile, cunning."

    Started writing late, in my mid-teens, but had always been an avid reader. Won a couple of minor awards for poetry and short fiction in my mid-twenties and had a number of essays and reviews published. Various other writing-related gigs include teaching composition and literature at California State University and editing of a small political rag (now defunct). Weighed my chances of ever making a living as a writer and decided I'd be better off as an entrepreneur. Began a business outfitting walking tours in Italy, where I lived for over a decade (living in Morocco now). I never stopped writing though - one novel, various stories, and a boatload of poetry. But I kept it to myself, waiting for when I really felt ready. Which is starting to happen around about now....

    Writing (well duh...), meditation, hiking.
