About meBorn in Denver and raised in San Francisco, I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in philosophy at San Francisco State, and a Master’s Degree in Religious Thought at the University of Pennsylvania. I was looking for the meaning of life. I didn’t find it, and quit a dissertation short of a Ph.D.
I decided that college teaching was too depressing when I discovered how many of my students cheated, and went to work instead in New York City with national and international liberal church organizations, writing articles and books and producing multimedia presentations and videos on social issues.
Twenty years later I moved to Vermont and started a desktop publishing business with a specialty in history. I also became the education director of a Vermont history museum working with kids, grownups, and the ghosts of people past.
I’ve written a number of books, most of them unpublished, but because I started in old age and am an abject coward, there aren’t all that many rejection slips.

About my libraryHundreds of books. Especially 19th century American history, photography and perception, women's history, fiction.
