Hello, dear readers. I may be getting older, but getting a little wiser, too – I hope. Thanks to the nudging of my brilliant computer son Conor in Seattle and the help of my talented and patient assistant Annette Helberg here in Spokane I have moved into the 21st century. My new blog-type web site will allow me to post updates on projects more easily and offer new content. I am going to do my best to post once a week about writing topics, research related to my books and teaching ideas. New year’s wishes and good health to all, as we move through the dark, deep days of December.
