JANUARY 2008: I am a writer, teacher, counselor and
coach. I published a novel, Home Boy (NAL Books, 1988;
Plume-Penguin, 1989) and a book of non-fiction -- a collection of
essays (accompanied by 76 of artist Irwin Inman's beautiful color
photographs) about children ages two through nine playing t-ball
in Yellow Springs, Ohio. The book is called A Thousand
Strikes: T-Ball Yellow Springs Style. I have published a couple
of poems and a couple of stories in literary journals such as Wright
State University's Nexus and Raskolnikov's Cellar.
I am a Lecturer at Wright State University teaching first year
composition, undergraduate and graduate fiction writing, and a
course called "Enhancing Your Creativity," using
Julia's Cameron's The Artist's Way: A Spiritual Path to Higher
Creativity. For the past 22 years I have coordinated and
coached in the Perry League, Yellow Springs, Ohio's assiduously
non-competitive t-ball program for girls and boys ages two to nine.
