About The Author
I was born and raised in the San Juan Mountains of southwestern Colorado. I've worked as a short-order cook, construction laborer, crab fisherman, janitor, bartender, pedi-cab driver, copyeditor, and more. I've written and ghostwritten several published books and articles, but no matter where I've gone or what I've done to earn my living, there's always been literature and learning as the constant in my life.

The pewter moonlight casts […]
- On Dogs, Devils, Sex, & True MoralityIn response to some of the most recent blowback anent my literature: The Woman Who Made a Pact with the Devil is not a satanic story. The author is not the devil, any more than his Book-of-Dog videos are satanic. The author likes to attempt to think up unique and artistic ideas for stories in […]
- To Hell With Swords and GarterDid you feel that tug? Like a half-forgotten idea you can’t quite put out of your head — the escalating sensation in the center of your chest telling you it’s time to shift your life?

- L.A. Wildfires: More Scientists Speak OutClifford Mass is a professor of Atmospheric Science at University of Washington. He’s also brilliant, and he’s had to endure a great deal of harassment and ridicule for his heterodox but inarguable data. He has reason and truth on his side, and that’s why he’s won and it’s why he will continue to win. The […]
- All of my life I did not want it to be only words“All my life I did not want it to be only words. This is why I lived, because I kept not wanting it. And now, too, every day I want it not to be words.” – Dostoevsky, Demons Dostoevsky, who is in many ways my favorite writer of all-time, was very religious, and yet one […]
- California Fires The Result of Climate Change — Except They Aren’tExcept that’s what left-wingers and right-wingers alike would have you believe. Says California governor Jerry Brown, in a move many of us saw coming seven-hundred miles down the 101, “[These fires] are the new normal.” To put that another way and as Rham Emmanuel once infamously said: “Never let a good crisis go to waste.” […]
- On Wisdom, Knowledge, Cell Phones, & Unchaining The Learning Beastie Within YouThis is the last and longest video in the course, and I urge you to watch it through to the end, because there are some surprises: Do you know what Google ethicists call cell phones? Tiny slot machines. You know why? Because cell phones are hard-to-put-down. I recently heard a report — and I believe […]
- Purpose and Focus: It’s Not What You ThinkWhat do you love? Or who? This course goes live tomorrow. My thanks to all of you who’ve pre-enrolled.
- A Taste of VenomThere is evidently something quite controversial in believing, as Thoreau did and as I do, that the government which governs least, governs best. It’s somehow regarded as deviant behavior, unpatriotic even. In 2008, not long after the release of Al Gore’s extraordinarily effective propaganda piece called An Inconvenient Truth — whose ten-year predictions have proven […]
