I'm retired from another life and live in the mountains of eastern West Virginia with my muse Jody along with one remaining dog. We've decided no more dogs and cats. Losing them is just too painful.
Being independent and no longer in the reins of someone else's driver, I now have the chance to revisit the many people and places that have enriched my life.
The good folks at Wesleyan College in central West Virginia guided me to a graduate degree in fine arts in early 2018. My plan is to use some of the skills I learned from two years in this creative writing program to tell my story.
