An Indianapolis native, I have been writing short stories, novels and plays for more than 50 years. Along with writing all those years, I have taught writing at several Indianapolis-area colleges.

My writings, including four published novels, ranging in genre from mainstream to suspense, fantasy, children’s and satire. Many of my writings are set in the milieu of 1950’s Indiana.
