Welcome! My writing career began more than twenty years ago after I wrote a letter to the editor of theĀ Arizona Republic in Phoenix AZ … and they invited me to write for them. My columns then appeared for eleven years until the newspaper downsized. Based on an offer to write Henry Zguda’s story, I spent fifteen years researching WWII, Poland, Auschwitz, and the Holocaust in order to finish HENRY: A Polish Swimmer’s True Story of Friendship from Auschwitz to America. I’ve answered phones for a forensic psychiatrist, ridden in a hot air balloon, hiked the Grand Canyon three times, and lost my car keys more times than I can count. I dream of the day sweet potato fries count as a vegetable.
