why I am doing this...
When I was sixteen it seemed inconceivable to me that I would ever become sixty years old.
The timespan was so vast, and as for death, it was so far away I could almost imagine I was immortal.
How perspectives change! My sixtieth birthday happened seventeen years ago, and when Betty, my mother, died last year – almost literally in the arms of my brother and myself – it confronted me with my own mortality.
It also changed my attitude towards my writing. Over the years, I’ve written six books, several musicals, a play, and many articles. Much of it was stored on my hard drive, or available for sale on various retail platforms.
Now I want to offer it all at once, freely, for anyone to appreciate. Making money from my writing has become irrelevant. I want as many people as possible to enjoy reading what I have enjoyed writing.
So, here it all is, plus a few videos and photos. The two exceptions are my novels, which are under contract to commercial publishers and therefore cannot be given away.
I feel grateful for this opportunity to share the contents of this website with you.
Love and best wishes,
