Welcome! I'm the author of two books and a freelance writer for the web and print. I specialize in animals and have a particular interest in all things Japanese, but I've also written on a wide variety of topics in the arts, travel, food, and home and garden. You can check out samples at the links above, but here are a few of my favorites:
This is my latest book:
Animals. Why do we think they're so cute, so noble, so admirable? They eat poop, for Pete's sake. Some of them will bite your head off as soon as look at you. I've spent much of my life either slaving over caring for animals, or writing about how great they are. This book is my revenge.
