Author/Hitchhiker

book2

I have hitchhiked the United States for most of 23 years.  I am a Christian.  I have had three books self-published.  I am self-educated and I also graduated from Iowa State University in 1995 with a BA in English Literature.  I have been influenced by monastic and Pentecostal Christianity.

Back in 2017, my publisher (Publish America/America Star Books) went out of business.  You can read High Plains Drifter:  A Hitchhiking Journey Across America for free on the Internet Archive.

A short story, "High Plains Drifter", was published by Ethos Magazine (Iowa State University) in 1995.  Two poems, "Shiloh" and "A Prophet's Eyes", were published by Ethos in 1997.

Author & Hitchhiker overlooking Jackson, WY in 2011

"Thou must join in with the beginnings of life, and be exercised with the day of small things, before thou meet with the great things, wherein is the clearness and satisfaction of the soul. The rest is at noonday; but the travels begin at the breakings of day, wherein are but glimmerings or little light, wherein the discovery of good and evil are not so manifest and certain; yet there must the traveller begin and travel; and in his faithful travels ... the light will break in upon him more and more."

--Isaac Penington

"Faith expressly signifies the deep, strong, blessed restlessness that drives the believer so that he cannot settle down at rest in this world, and therefore the person who has settled down completely at rest has also ceased to be a believer, because a believer cannot sit still as one sits with a pilgrim’s staff in one’s hand – a believer travels forward."

--Søren Kierkegaard
