I am a writer, editor, and publisher living just north of the Golden Gate Bridge with my wife, author/teacher Maura Vaughn, our author-to-be daughters. And our (apparently) non-literary cats.
Currently, I run my own small publishing company, Stillpoint Digital Press. Since 1999, I’ve overseen the publications program for Joseph Campbell Foundation. I have edited three posthumous volumes of Campbell’s unpublished writing and lectures and overseen editions of nine additional titles, the most recent being the third edition of the seminal Hero with a Thousand Faces.
I have just finished Risuko, a young adult historical adventure novel (whew! lots of qualifications on that!) set in Japan during the Civil War era. Now I'm working on the sequel, Bright Eyes.
I’m a passionate reader of mysteries, fantasy and whatever else I can get my hands on. I am a story addict.
I also have a really healthy respect for heights. (In one of Terry Pratchett’s Tiffany Aching books, the heroine realizes that it’s not the heights that she’s afraid of: it’s the depths. I understand that.)
