Welcome to my new site, still under construction.

I’m pleased to introduce myself and my writing.

My life has been much occupied with stories — telling tales, writing fiction, crafting poetry, and always reading, filling my head with more stories.  In my reviews I share the books I’ve been enjoying. You can  link to “Ziemer’s Tree” for family stories revealed by my genealogical research. Other links highlight organizations and institutions that figure into my literary life.

Check in also for news and updates on publications, readings, events, and reports on experiences related to my writing.
