I'm an outgoing, well-read, highly educated writer and professor, a good teacher and athlete. I have four well-received books out, three of them novels, and two more novels in the works. I read and write every day, even while teaching. I love to cook, garden, hike, bike, and ride my horse. I love to talk about books and ideas, preferably while hiking, or eating great food, and hope to find someone who feels the same way.
