About the Writer

img_1197.jpgMy background in philosophy and current interests in literary theory form the backbone of what I write.

Philosophical influences include Descartes, the Roman Stoics, Seneca and Marcus Aurelius, and the existentialist philosophers Sartre, Kierkegaard, and Nietzsche.

I also enjoy the work by the science fiction author Philip K. Dick and the existentialist novelist Camus.

Besides working on my career as a professional writer, I teach in the Central Valley of California, and am a Teacher Leader with the UC Merced Writing Project.
