Meet the Author

In the late 1990s I was honored to work with Robert M. Pirsig (author of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry into Values, and Lila: An Inquiry into Morals)which resulted in my first book called Lila's Child: An Inquiry into Quality, available in both print and as an e-file. Mr. Pirsig shares many insights into his Metaphysics of Quality, which allows for a deeper and more expanded way of understanding reality.

These days I write literary fiction rather than non-fiction, including the Gathering of Lovers series as well as the Mermaid series. I also have several collections of short stories and anthologies that revolve around Zen Buddhism and Eastern teachings as seen through the eyes of Western culture.

Being a student of Pirsig for many years, I am thrilled to see new work involving his writings. LILA'S CHILD is a valuable companion to both LILA and ZEN AND THE ART OF MOTORCYCLE MAINTENANCE and a handy reference source for some of the the questions left unanswered in Pirsig's two books. The book starts out a little slow. The first time I read it, I skipped over pretty much all of the first two chapters before something caught my attention in chapter 3. It finishes strong though, and deserves a prominent spot on any Pirsig reader's bookshelf.
