Oldest Michigan Map



Feel free to contact me about anything. Writing, artwork, books, whatever. I will try to get back with you as soon as possible. If you never hear back from me, I have either died, or have no interest in what you are selling.

I love getting books and other goodies in the mail, but please note I’m not a book reviewer or creative writing professor. I only read and share things that genuinely interest me. Please don’t send me unpublished manuscripts or anything that needs returned. If you’re dying to hear back from me, you can increase the likelihood I’ll write back by sending a self-addressed and stamped envelope.


Students of art, authors, creative writers, designers, inventors, and everyone else who has the creative gene within them, I will answer whatever question you may have on any subject to help you with your projects.  If you have questions about my works, read my books, join my newsletter, follow me on Facebook or another social network, a good place to start is my about page - there's a lot of information there.

If you're looking for advice, I will offer that as well. I am by no means an expert on anything, however I do have a wealth of experience I can share. You can also read more recent writing on my blog.
