“You start writing the next one. And after you finish that one, you start on the next, and on and on. And that’s what it is to be a writer, honey. You just keep throwing them against the wall and hoping against hope that, eventually, something sticks.”

— from the film “Tick…Tick…BOOM!”

I like telling stories and making music. Trained as an engineer, worked as a lawyer, recovering from both. Perpetual novice. Enjoying my obscurity. What I’m up to now (with a nod to Derek Sivers for the idea):

Two new stories out

I have a new crime short story and a women’s fiction short story available for sale. I wrote the crime story this year and the women’s fiction story ten years ago, so it was interesting to see how much my writing has changed over that time.

Learning guitar (classical and now electric)

I’ve been taking classical guitar lessons for a year now and still enjoy the challenge. But let’s face it, guitar is way too versatile to stick to only one genre of music, so I recently bought a Fender Telecaster. It’s a different instrument and yet not, and my classical guitar teacher (who started out playing Black Sabbath!) is thrilled I’m diving deeper into the guitar world.

Made it into the Rockin’ 1000

What’s the Rockin’ 1000? This:

Yes, I auditioned for a rock band with a classical guitar, but it worked! If you want to check out the heartwarming origin story of the Rockin’ 1000, the documentary is currently available in the United States (finally!), France, and Italy.
