Born in Savannah, GA (1959), I grew up in and around some of the most beautiful sites and important places in our state's history. Failing to realize the cultural value of this rich heritage, I went out into the world to "find myself"--as so many members of my generation were fond of doing. Even so, as I matured (grew older & wiser) I eventually appreciated the often tumultuous past of the Southeastern and Coastal regions of Georgia. I became especially attuned to Savannah's history and lore, fascinated by how much the area's past had influenced my life. Thus, I returned to the area in June 1993. I finished my BA-English at Armstrong Atlantic State University (2001) where I also went on to complete my Master of Education--Adult Education (Technology) (2005). I worked as a social worker (advocating and overseeing services for developmentally disabled communities) for a number of years and went on to become a part-time instructor of Developmental and Entry-level English at Savannah Technical College. Afterward, I facilitated/conducted trolley tours in Historic Savannah, informing visitors/guests all about our captivating city. Besides teaching and conducting trolley tours, some of my most fun and memorable experiences have been facilitating journal writing workshops at an assisted living community. I am now tremendously enjoying semi-retirement (with my wife & family) and making the most of it by tending to a number of writing projects which I had delayed far too long (while concentrating on my education and other work). Peace, Love, Hope, Don
