I was born in the Red Hook section of Brooklyn, NY during WW II. Hitler and Ghandi were still living. I studied with Jose Donoso at the University of Iowa Writer's Workshop, where I received my MFA. Eventually, I added a PhD from Pacific Western in English Language and Literature. I've taught at Gannon College, The University of New Mexico's Honors College, Central New Mexico Community College; currently, I'm back at UNM in Continuing Education. I've retired two or three times. My real work has always been writing.
I play tennis three or four times a week to the tune of The older I get the better I was. This line is true in so many ways, it could be a poem.
Feel free to wander around while I build this site.
