About Me:
I've been a writer for much of my life both literary and commercial. I've produced and directed my own plays, made films of visual poetry inspired by the poetry of Timothy Victor Richardson and am marketing my novels through the Internet.
I became an environmentalist activist after sitting in a gas line in 1973, at the time of the first oil embargo. I was shocked at how vulnerable my country was due to its dependence on fossil fuels. It was self evident to me that this was a national security matter.
Unfortunately, I found very little support for that concept. Most people thought I was ridiculously dramatic when I insisted if we didn’t make energy independence a national priority we were in danger of going to war in the middle east. How absurd!
Oh, really?
Do you have Website or Blog, what's it about?
