About the Author
In Pocatello, Idaho, 1957-63, studying English and American Literature; there inspired by Ed Dorn, Black Mountain poet in residence, to start Wild Dog magazine, which flourished through twenty-one issues with Gino Sky and Drew Wagnon. Escaped Idaho for San Francisco in 1964, settled in Haight-Ashbury just as that revolution began: two decades passed in that transformative time in Marin County: raising two children, while work with John Lilly’s Janus project on dolphin communication led to writing the earliest versions of THE DOLPHINS OF OCEANUS; also began investigating California/San Francisco history and writing first version of LADY OF THE SORROWS; also wrote hundreds of pages of narrative poetry, and staged several plays with local community theater. Graduated at last from the counter-culture to discover Robert Ennis and Tayu in Sebastopol, three precious years studying with that Master. Then found a blessed woman and moved to Ajijic, Mexico, and lived there seven years, learning to build houses Mexican style, and communing with the locals of the barrio. Re-emerged again in 2001 in Sacramento, private tutoring English, Spanish and Algebra weekdays and writing novels weekends, seven books in six years. Writing slowed severely in ’07 when it became necessary to rescue and raise four grandchildren, who still live with him and his wife Elaine in Sacramento to the present day.
