I like to laugh. I like witty people. A perfect day for me begins with the New York Times and breakfast in bed, followed by a bit of writing, a walk in the sun, and fishing, riding horses, gardening, or cooking later in the day.
I publish a lot on Kindle, iBooks, and scribd.com.I have more than 100 videos on youtube on Ireland, riding horses, potholes, signs of spring, and anything else that strikes my fancy.
I'm a professor who does research and writing as well as teaching. My research is primarily qualitative, and I write a lot about qualitative methods, particularly deductive qualitative analysis. My research is on what makes program work for children and families, the development of violent behaviors, and the meanings of violence to perpetrators and survivors. I'm working on a book on violence and on deductive qualitative analysis.
