About Me

I'm an American living in India. I enjoy writing about the surreal abstractions of the mind and the journey within as well as haiku and short stories. I just published my first book! See below for more details. I am also enjoying my journey into the realm of Indian cooking and culture. I hope to share with you little glimmers here and there as I catch the reflections. Please do stop by often.


I've become completely addicted to Hubbing. If you enjoy writing and want a great community to be a part of, give a click and sign up! It's free, it's simple and you can earn a little extra money. Most of all, it's fun!
