I’m retired/disabled. I travel as I please and carve out my own hours for writing. In college, I studied English and Linguistics. In graduate school, I studied typography and type design. My Jewish roots tend to creep a little into most of my work. Road trips, too. I love road trips and classic cars. The printing, advertising, and public relations fields had me hogtied for about 15 years. Which authors have inspired me? Ernest Hemingway for his terseness, Marge Piercy for her ability to get into people’s heads, and Robert Pirsig for showing me the value of a journey.
