Welcome to my authorís pages...
Iíve authored two books on academic classroom films. I've also written essays and magazine articles on the Humanities, Travel, and Business. My
latest book (coming in June, 2015) is a how-to manual on how to found and
sustain a successful nonprofit in tough economic times. The Academic Film Archive of
North America, which has been going strong for 15 years, provided
much of the resource material for that book. Here on this site, you can view many of
my writings on film, music, radio, and culture. And you can read some of my
current fiction, too.
Iíve written on travel subjects as well, with more than 700 posts to the
WoWasis Asian travel
website. There are several nonfiction and
fiction books in process, and
a collection of short stories in the works too. You can read a couple of those short
stories on this site. Ready to take a look at my words and world?
directory is below. Have fun, enjoy reading, and
let me know what you think.

concerned with call-and-response driven by the hemistichal rhythmic cadence
of the preacher.
