In honor of Saint Patrick's Day, learn more about an ancient prayer attributed to the saint who drove the serpents (symbols of the devil's malice) out of Ireland.

I've finally gotten back to my series on accounts of the Great Flood in ancient literature. This time I finish up my look at Ovid's Metamorphoses. Next time: the Bible.

Two opportunities to meet with other Catholic writers this month in the DFW area. The fourth-Tuesday meeting has been moved to the fifth Tuesday, to avoid scheduling conflicts during Holy Week. Join us!

This is an interesting view from a publishing-industry insider, with plenty of good news for indie writers and publishers: "THE E-PUBLISHING REVOLUTION IS DEFINITELY NOT OVER (Regardless of what you’ve heard)"

Story
Tagline
I read, write, think, and teach in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex
Introduction
After years in academics and non-profits, I am now dedicating my time to writing, and helping other writers succeed. I'm currently working on a Catholic science fiction novel (the first of a series) and have a best-selling book on the household use of diatomaceous earth on Amazon.com, as well as maintaining several blogs.

My Ph.D. in Literature from the University of Dallas helped me indulge my love of literature, languages, philosophy, and history, all of which I've had an opportunity to teach at one time or another (currently under the auspices of the Walsingham Society of Christian Culture and Western Civilization).

For many years, I have sung with the parish choir of St Mary the Virgin Catholic Church in Arlington, TX, and I have accumulated many years' experience volunteering in charitable outreach to the poor, in adult literacy, at the Arlington Night Shelter, and working with the St Vincent de Paul Society in Evansville, IN, visiting the needy and serving meals at the community soup kitchen.

After years of experience in community service, graphic design, scholarship, and teaching, I've finally returned to my childhood love, writing. I've finally figured out that you really can "have it all," just not all at the same time! Life is good.
Bragging rights
I've published a small book on the household uses of diatomaceous earth (Naturally Healthy Living With Diatomaceous Earth), which is selling well on Amazon.Right now, I'm working on a soft-science scifi novel with Catholic themes: _Cast Into the Deep Sea of Stars_. I'm available for all kinds of writing projects, but I prefer long-copy informational writing over copy-writing.
