My creative endeavours have been something of a random walk, with forays into mathematics, software development, poetry, musical composition, and, of course, fiction. My first serious attempt at writing novels came over thirty years ago, and, had it been more successful, my life might have been very different. As it turned out, I spent much of the intervening time as one of the key programmers for a giant in the computer industry. I have always been a serious pianist, but in my late thirties I discovered that I also have a talent for composition. During my years as a road warrior, I used to stay at hotels with pianos in the atrium, and give impromptu concerts in the evening. You can hear my music on Soundclick. If I add that I was a soccer player in college, some may suspect an alter ego in my novels. Now that I am retired, I have time to return to one of my early vocations. Hopefully, I have become better with time
I live with in a large house with my wife of many years. My children have moved away to their own lives. I am an active church member, but I believe that binding our understanding to ancient texts is foolish. The world of my novels is one where God is still at work in dangerous and unsettling ways, perhaps a world very much like the one we live in. Some may shocked that such a serious person is writing such sensual novels, and I am a bit surprised also. But, the characters have burst out of their own volition, and at this point, they have taken on a life of their own. I hope that you will enjoy them as much as I do.

Mary, the abbess of the Academy, and Laura, the governor of transit station, have often wondered what it is like to be a man. Now they have an opportunity to find out with each other.
