I'm a native New Yorker. After a good deal of disappointment, I gave up writing. Then my mother passed away, and I found that fishing helped ease my grief. Almost accidently, I wrote and sold a fishing article. Afterwards, my articles and memoirs appeared in many publications, including The Flyfisher, Flyfishing & Tying Journal and Yale Anglers' Journal.
To me, much of my writing is about coming to terms with loss, and with a world I can't always understand. In a sense, my writing is autobiographical, as it reflects my own gratifying, but at times, difficult journey of emotional and spiritual recovery.
On the long road of my journey, I slowly learned that, even when I don't have answers, I must strive to find forgiveness and self-worth and to connect to the good and the beautiful in the world.
(This is how I define spirituality.)
I therefore love books where the main characters struggle against inner and outer conflicts and then try to do good.
My most recent book is, The Way of the River: My Journey of Fishing, Forgiveness and Spiritual Recovery.
Science, history, literature, music, football, hockey, and of course fishing.
