I tend to be presumptuous. I tend to hide behind a facade of humility. So sometimes I use a pseudonym borrowed from three literary figures who’ve left an imprint on my heart. Also: rum, Pinterest, profanity (humorously used); these are my vices.

I hold degrees in theology and writing. My education has taught me some things, but mostly I’ve learned how little I actually know. I like to call that grace.

I’m a bibliophile in every sense of the word. The first book I wrote was a sequel to Richard Adam’s Watership Down. That was in third grade. It was six pages long. (I’d hoped for seven.) When she’d read it, my teacher returned it with a scratch-and-sniff sticker plastered on the front.

I love making coffee but never drink it. I appreciate the ascetics of a good beer but don’t like the taste. My favorite song has no lyrics. My favorite Bible passage has five words. I try not to take myself too seriously. But I believe a life well-lived is highlighted with tears.

I’m married to a woman who is my saving grace, in more ways than one. We don’t have any children but once we managed to keep a bamboo plant alive for two years. We live in New England, somewhere between the mountains and the sea.

I’d love to hear from you, but only if you share a picture of an orca.

Thank you for reading.

    1. Thank you for the nomination! I am honored. I haven’t had a chance to follow up on it yet, but I will when I do. Thanks for reading; every Watterson fan is a friend of mine!

  1. Totally curious…which five-word Bible passage? I went to a Presbyterian elementary school where we had to memorize a Bible verse per week for prizes. For some reason, the teachers never appreciated my suggestion of John 11:35…”Jesus wept.” 🙂

  2. “Please, if you must send hate mail, make it a haiku.” 🙂

    also “every Watterson fan is a friend of mine!” 😀
