Calling all mystery lovers, restless travelers, faith-ponderers, tree-lovers, dog-fanciers, foodeners, and any of y’all who enjoy being in a community of friendly folks. Hop aboard to get full access to Mystery, Memoir, & Meaning, a newsletter about a novel, a quest, and a restless mind. By subscribing to my newsletter you will receive new and regularly updated Dead Ringer chapters, frequent attempts at general meaning-making, and news about any upcoming publications, including my Chasing Light memoir.

Stay up-to-date

Each new edition of MM & M will be delivered directly to your inbox, landing with a softly pleasing “whump” and stirring up sparkly bits of email dust.

Free, for now, but also…

Currently, there is no paywall, but I welcome paid subscribers who consider my content worthy of financial support. Even though writing is a creative act that brings great joy (most days, LOL/sob), it is also my (gasp) livelihood. (Okay, whose bright idea was that?!)

A novel, a quest, and a restless mind.

I write essays and am querying agents about my memoir CHASING LIGHT ("An agnostic ex-pastor on the hunt for God in a small RV with two big dogs. What could go wrong?") Also, serializing a mystery novel (DEAD RINGER) here on Substack.
