I live in rural Wisconsin and work full time as an artist-potter.  My wife and I are award-winning artists, (www.lindenhillspottery.com), creating ceramic art and showing throughout the mid-western USA.

After taking graduate courses in creative writing at the University of Wisconsin, I joined the Literary Loft in Minneapolis, continuing studies with Award-winning author Peter Geye.  An amazing writer’s group has spurred my writing and kept me out of (or perhaps into) the depths of darkness.
