I've been writing professionally since 1978, when I drafted news releases and speeches as the energy and environment aide to a US Senator in Washington, DC. After my first child was born in 1980, I wrote a regular stream of Letters to the Editor and Op Eds on subjects concerning my children's future, especially peace and ecology. These were published in local papers. As the kids grew older, I began making up stories to tell them. Six of these stories have evolved into full manuscripts for children's picture-story books (see below).

In 1998, I began writing a fortnightly column for my hometown newspaper, the Petaluma Argus-Courier. Since then, the Argus has published over 240 of these columns, which address "building sustainable community."
