Since 1981 I have lived with my wife Susan in Awendaw, South Carolina, a community bordering on the Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge and the Francis Marion National Forest. We raised two children, Sara and Eliot, and they have moved on to further their careers in other parts of South Carolina and beyond. I worked over thirty-eight years as a recreation therapist in the Medical University of South Carolina’s Institute of Psychiatry and Center for Drug and Alcohol Programs prior to my full retirement in December of 2016. My passion for sailing, the natural world, and history are driving forces for my writing, and continue to motivate ongoing explorations. I devote time to service work for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, including work with the loggerhead turtle program. I was selected in 2011 as a board member for the Sewee Association – now the Friends of Coastal South Carolina.
