Welcome to my blog page. I am a writer and a gardener. My short stories deal with two main subjects: family and my experiences in nature. I started writing short stories when I realized I came from an odd and interesting family. I used to think my family was crazy. As I got older, I came to the conclusion that my family was eccentric in the best possible ways. I began collecting stories and letters before this realization came about. Eventually I started interviewing family members, mining for stories. Lucky for me, most members of my family talk a lot, which made unearthing family secrets relatively easy. This blog is dedicated to all families, even the functional ones.
