When not writing or teaching, I can usually be found roaming around old ruins with my friend Sophia, a neurotic white dog with a long-standing fear of leaves. She's good at spotting ghosts, though. Word of advice on ruin/woods explorations: Always trust the dog and be prepared to run like hell.
Engaged in more non-money-making ventures than anyone else I know. But, on the upside of life, I live with two of the most interesting people I've ever met - the housemates Betsy and Emily, my wife and daughter.
