I’ve published a number of things over the years, but none of them made me as happy as when I had the honor of having The Last Word in UU World magazine (above).  I can’t complain that I’ve never had the last word on anything, because I have!


Apocryphile Press of Berkeley, CA published my first novel in 2017.  You can learn more about Saint Somebody Central Catholic here.
