I blog. Obviously I blog here on my own site, but I do occasionally guest blog for others as well.
Email — High Prairie Reflections is a periodic email that I send out, usually a short essay with links to recent blog postings.You can click here to subscribe, or just fill out the form below.
Periodicals — I write for periodicals. Here are a couple of samples of the sorts of articles I write:

Books — I write and publish books. I have one book published to-date, and have 5 or 6 “next books” that I’m working on. Which one becomes the next book published depends on where my interest stays engaged I suppose, but I know I need to turn one of these “projects” free in the coming year.
Peace at the Edge of Uncertainty
Peace at the Edge of Uncertainty is a memoir of mystical connections and out of body experience. It tells about learning to pray, and learning to listen. It’s a story that rested within me for years, and as I told it to small groups and church gatherings, people asked over and over that I write the story down.
So I did, and that story is this first book. It’s short and very accessible. It won’t try to sell you on any particular “brand” of belief – it will only share the questions I’ve asked, and what I’ve heard in response as I’ve tried to listen. The answers might surprise you.
Next projects include the following:
- Christian Haggadah – having celebrated Passover within a Christian tradition for years, I’ve written many versions of the “seder” or “order”, and would like to publish one that other Christian groups might use as a foundation to explore this beautiful and meaningful holiday.
- Pedaling and Introspecting – I’m in the midst of a multi-year trek across the country on my bicycle, and in the process of developing some of what I’m learning into the story of America as I’m seeing it.
- Hunting and fishing stories – these are the most fun to write, and I’m looking forward to testing the waters for a market for these stories.
