About meFreelance copy editor and writer working out of my home in Woodstock, New York.

As a writer: published three nonfiction novels I Think, Therefore Who Am I?, Memoir of a Psychedelic Year, republished in Italy as Penso, dunque chi sono?; Digging Deeper, A Memoir of the Seventies; and most recently (see B& for cover picture) Getting Real, Drifting into Middle Age.

As a copy editor, I edit and style manuscripts for several mainstream publishers. I've never made a whole lot of money doing this but it's bought me the time to write when I'm not editing. And then, there's the benefit of living by my own schedule.
