About Me

My writing’s eclectic, as is evident in my Op-Eds in the Pulitzer-Prize-winning Providence Journal. Then there’s my Grandpa and the Truck children’s books at (www.grandpaandthetruck.com), or my soon-to-be released book, Boomerrrang. Upon invitation, I guest-speak also.

But I am almost always a humorist.

My Op-Eds encourage teachers in an ever-more-difficult career and remind readers of their childhood.

My Grandpa and the Truck children’s books, about the exciting travels of a 30 year, big-rig driver who moved households over the entire United States, have been heralded by parents, teachers, Women In Trucking (WIT) and the biggest international truckers’ association, OOIDA.

In Boomerrrang,  I talk about about the journey many of us make to identify our retirement home. I base it on my partner Paul’s and my almost nine years, living in one of America’s top retirement towns–Asheville.

But it’ll be a fun and useful guide for all who plan to buy or sell a home… anywhere.

So, writing about teaching….trucking….moving out of state and back again.  As I said, I’m  eclectic.
