I have five books in progress, including "The Middle East Crisis In My Backyard" and numerous articles published.
I make my home in the mountains above Harpers Ferry where I am happily nested with the birds, the trees and the squirrels. Most fulfilling for me is watching the sunset from the deck of my home, particularly with friends, family and guests -- and/or -- sitting around a campfire in the woods telling and listening to stories.
