About meAs a writer, my published nonfiction novels include: I Think, Therefore Who Am I?, Memoir of a Psychedelic Year--translated and published in Italy as Penso, dunque chi sono?; and Digging Deeper, A Memoir of the Seventies. I'm currently working on a book I call "Ordinary Adventures."

As a freelance copy editor working out of my house, I edit and style mainly fiction manuscripts for Penguin/Random House.
