Joined 8 years ago from Florida




My career has taken many twists and turns. I started out wanting nothing more than being a disc jockey. As it turns out, the last professional radio job I did was also my first, and I found that the profession did not challenge me enough.

Then I pursued a career as a journalist, which included going back to school and getting a master's degree from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale. I worked as a journalist for eight years, covering municipal government for a number of small communities in western Massachusetts.

Ironically, after losing a reporting job back in the mid-nineties, I ended up transitioning into work on the other side of the municipal table, working as an administrator for several small towns (including a couple I used to cover).

In 2003, my family relocated to Maine, and I decided it was time to pursue my long-standing dream of teaching on a collegiate level. I have taught for Southern Maine Community College, Andover College, Kaplan University online and presently for the University Phoenix/Axia College online.

Additionally, I have established a small publishing operation I call Full Moon Over Bunganut Publishing.

I write science fiction and fantasy novels, and presently have focused my efforts on a series you see reflected on this site. Thank you for stopping by my hub. Check back often, and even leave a message, if you are so-inclined!

I used to have links to all my hubs in the space below, but I was dissatisfied with the appearance of it on my profile. Instead, I've posted a hub that has many of my hubs listed with links to take you there. I'm still organizing it, so it's not complete, but it's still useful. Here's the link:


I've also been putting my links on a few other sites. Here they are:

    My grandfather was a man of very few words, and much less when it came to his experiences in World War II. Later in life, this brave and valiant man tragically suffered a stroke, which caused some curious changes. Aside...

    If we're talking purely about cleanliness, I have to believe that showers would be better than baths, as a general rule. After reading this request, I decided to do a quick google search and found opinions on both sides...
