I have written, off and on, for twenty years, in a variety of genres, both fiction and non-fiction. Mostly, I haven't published these efforts, but these efforts have increased my proficiency. I also read widely, which informs my writing.

I've also worked in a number of fields, mostly dealing with language (both written and spoken).
