  • Coming Soon

    I wish I could describe the thrill of writing a new story . . . but I can’t. And me being a writer? Perhaps ‘thrill’ or excitement works well enough. While writing, every day is a new adventure. I truly don’t know where the story …

  • Looking Back

    This morning I did something I haven’t done in years–I walked back in time. It was fifteen years ago that I said good-bye to Hibbing High School and a legacy of sorts. In addition to teaching at the fabled high school, I coached and taught …
