About Me

My photo
I write and live with my beautiful wife, Sandra, and sons (Solstice, Finnegan and Brahms) in a little-big house on a dirt road in a valley in the hills. My secret identity struggles through the grind of teaching high school English to the denizens of Vermont's Northeast Kingdom.

A novel experience!

Merry Christmas, everyone! Yesterday, I had a novel experience (every pun intended). My beautiful wife and I went to Littleton, NH (just across the Connecticut River) to do some last minute shopping yesterday. When we went into the Village Book Store, I found two copies of my first novel on the shelf. It was really something. It is a place I frequented as a child, and to see my books there really was a magical moment. As I signed the books, a nice young woman who had gone to school with my brother, Trace, approached and talked to me about the book and my lovely acting brother. I couldn't have had a better Christmas present!

They say you reap what you sow. Little would I know that the seed of a story that was planted when I was dating my wife in 1998 be harvested at Christmas time in 2011. I guess good times do come to those that wait (and work!).

So, I hope you and yours are doing well, and that good will follows you throughout your days.
