The author grew up amid the rivers and hillsides of the Midwest, then moved to Northern California at age nineteen. There, he planted redwood trees amid clear-cuts and was stunned by the damage done to the few remaining slivers of ancient forest. After a few false starts at writing, he returned to college to do graduate study in history and did free-lance reporting, then began to write poetry and short stories. He spends much of his time reading and exploring the implications of both the new physics, plus an emerging global commonality of law and shared resources.
Author quote: "My life has been one of unexpected surprises, sharply defined by the before and after of travels to other countries, the beauty of love, and a rigorous introduction to the seemingly impossible. In all that we do, there is much more than meets the eye. Ultimately, our limits are self-imposed, often illusory."
