I am a former Hibbing High School teacher and like to believe that I’m an accomplished speaker.   Over the years I’ve been the program guest of many civic and social organizations and have been contracted to offer writing workshops on several occasions.  That’s fun too.  I think everybody has a story to tell and/or a book to write and I’m happy to share my experiences with any group.  Generally, my appearances can be arranged without any charge to a hosting group.

One of my favorite things to do is join book clubs that have selected one of my books for discussion.  I’ve traveled to clubs across Minnesota and enjoy the opportunity to share those unique insights that only an author can provide.  Please don’t hesitate to contact me using my personal website address: or by phone at 218-969-1891.

Whenever I am engaged for an event, that event will be highlighted on this website.  If desired, photos and commentaries can be posted here and on my Facebook or Instagram pages as well.

If interested in ordering a personally signed and personalized copy of any of my titles please email me or call. 

I am currently scheduling book-signings for late October through November of 2020.  My latest novel, ‘Lester’s Gift'(2019) is available but in short supply. I expect a new Father Mickey novel to be published in late summer 2020.  I will post a list of events on this page when they have been scheduled.

As my photo on this page indicates, I’m a huge Twins fan.  And, I think, the photo makes me look younger, too.
