Portrait of a Seeker: Idealism, Destiny, Living Internationally and my Search for Meaning

This is an autobiographical narrative, collection of poetry & short fiction and travelogue.

It’s a portrait of myself and the world as I see it.  It includes accounts of unusual experiences, correspondence with others on the path of life, journal entries and pictures.

I recommend this book.  It’s worth taking a chance.

If you’ve ever gazed at anything with a feeling of wonder, we could be similar.  If you’ve ever been tempted to venture into the unknown and pursue or try something, we have something in common.  If you’ve lived in a world that did not fulfill you, but knew that there was something really big and Real, only you didn’t have it, then I recommend Portrait.  We “birds of a feather” should encourage each other to march to our own drum.

Portrait of a Seeker is available on Amazon and from other online and brick-and-mortar book sellers.  You can also order it from your local brick & mortar book store.

Ben and the Dragon

I wrote this story for my eight-year-old son, Ben, for Christmas last year.  My artist wife, Andrée illustrated this book with more than twenty pencil drawings and painted its cover image.  Ben and the Dragon is available on Amazon and from other online and brick-and-mortar book sellers.

Ben and the Dragon is from our lives. Two brothers, a mother and father, a dog, the house we live in, our village pond, home painting projects, Lego’s and Christmas lights—everything was shuffled and arranged, but never changed.  The only made-up thing in this book is the dragon’s world, which was influenced by my ideas of my French wife’s home country.
I imagined what Ben would do and think during his dragon adventures.  I wanted to give him a story-present where he is a main character.

One early winter day, a boy named Ben saw a dragon in the water….

 

Situations cover

Situations Of I was fun to write, and is available on Amazon.  I hope you enjoy this one.

A time-traveling salamander; a UFO abducting a vintage covered bridge; an autobiography of light; musings on dinosaur religion and explorations of life, meaning and existence are among the subjects of this fourth published work. Profane and profound, “Situations Of I” is, “centered on the unique free-floating magic reality I take completely for granted-individual awareness.” This collection of philosophic essays, speculative short stories and prose poetry emerged from my life and observations while living in the village of Flushing, Ohio. Each chapter is a stand-alone vignette with arguably more question marks per page than nearly any other work of its size. With titles such as, “Home is Where I Live,” “Gasoline Planet,” “A Blade Hanging, Overhead,” “Eternal Burgers” and “Hollow Houses,” each piece challenges the reader, as well as myself, to delve within and to question intently what we “know for sure.”
