I have hitchhiked the United States for most of 22 years. I am a Christian. I have had three books self-published: High Plains Drifter: A Hitchhiking Journey Across America (2008), The First Time I Rode a Freight Train & other hitchhiking stories (2012) and Writings from the Road (2016). 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.
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.

Book Review: The First Time I Rode a Freight Train & other hitchhiking stories
"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."
