I am a writer of both novels and poetry. The two are very different disciplines. In poetry, the ear and eye reach consensus, but with the novel, the characters can rise to stand even against the sensibilities of the writer. When this happens, there is no point in arguing. Currently I live and sail on Ohio's North Coast and divide my time between writing and teaching at Wright State and Bowling Green State Universities. My most recent novel is McGowan's Call, and in 2006 I received the Robert Frost Poetry Award from the Frost Foundation in Lawrence, Mass.
