My writing's been all over the place during a long and ongoing career. When I was freelancing in New York, I did annual reports, ad copy, flyers, brochures, speeches, ghostwrote someone's autobiography... whatever would pay the rent and the grocer. I saw my ability to put words together as craft not art. The proverbial late bloomer, I didn't realize until I was ancient that I might use that ability to write things I actually care about. I figure I have to live forever to make up for all the years I didn't do the kind of work you can see if/when you click over to my books, poems, and Giraffe Heroes stuff.
