• Welcome to the website that is perhaps my Letter to the World,
  • which has indeed written back, once in a while,
  • despite my late start on the correspondence.
  • Looking back over the decades, I know now that I've always been
  • a storyteller, even in kindergarten, where I kept taking over the class
  • to tell them stories.
  • I didn't know that was a calling until I was more than half-way through what's turning out to be a long life.
  • Now, actuarially, time is getting short, so I'm gathering up that late-begun work and leaving it here, in the vast forest that is the internet,
  • in hopes it may be of value on your path to a long and creative life.
  • And right now, I'm pleased to tell you that
  • my roman á clef aka auto-novel,
  • about the first half of this long life
  • is getting a new life of its own.
  • Ask your favorite bookseller for Silence of the Seamaid
  • or click here to order on Amazon,
  • that great maker or breaker of books.

  • and you'll see a charming minute-long review from a reader.

And here's me, with a few daft words on why you need to read Silence of the Seamaid. Do click, it's fun.

  • A one-day push of Silence on Amazon has earned the book a gold star.
  • Well, that's nice.
  • Now if the people who downloaded the book read it, I'll be truly pleased.
  • Hey, if you give people actual books, you can watch them reading.
  • Somehow people staring at Kindles just aren't as interesting.

There's a lot more here. Do wander. Welcome to it all.
