2020 Quill Award nominee for Best Portfolio!   I spent twenty years writing maintenance manuals before retirement. Technical writing used up a lot of energy but didn't really satisfy the creative urge. Here, you'll find my poetry, stories, and jokes. The most recent work is in the main folder (eligible for the 2023 Quills). Older stuff is separated into books and folders. My work is usually born of strong feelings. I'm inspired by my love for my wife, my awe of natural wonders, and a disgust for venal politics. Some don't care for my political views, so I've separated those items into their own collection. Enter at your own risk!
