I am a retired psychologist now writing full time. I have published Commonsense Wisdom for Everyday Life, a book of reflections on everyday experiences, Young Man of the Cloth, a memoir about my nine years in the seminary and monastery, and The Pastor's Inferno, a novel about a priest's search for redemption after abusing a young parishioner. I also write a biweekly newspaper column on commonsense wisdom topics and a blog, Conversations with Calliope. an ongoing dialogue with my muse. I am currently completing my second novel, Marital Property.
