I have been writing fiction since junior high school, and have been selling it off and on since attending the Clarion Writer’s Workshop in 1970. Though I admire all sorts of writing, I most enjoy reading old time adventure stories such as Treasure Island, science fiction, and some fantasy. I have read Alice in Wonderland, Mary Poppins, and Wind in the Willows many times. I am not much interested in thud and blunder heroic fantasy. I enjoy middle grade and young adult fiction, and have written a lot of it with some success. I also enjoy Golden Age radio, and TV shows from the middle of the last century. I can also talk about food, cats, and music.
