I have been a professional author for over 30 years, writing fiction and non-fiction, and novels and stories for younger readers of all ages. More recently, I have found myself drawn to writing short stories.

I sometimes wonder why my career has taken me down such a hopelessly hazy and winding path (more anguished musings about writing and books are to be found in my Writer’s Shed), but I’ve concluded that there’s absolutely nothing I can do about it.

Maybe I just like it that way.
