Where narrative begins…

Aloha from  Hawai‘i Island. Thank you for visiting this site.

As a freelance writer and author, I specialize in topics that cover environmental and food issues, sustainable agriculture, green energy, and sustainability on all levels. My style veers toward narrative in which academic research intersects with human interest and becomes easily accessible to non-scientist readers.

With dozens of articles and essays in consumer, business, and trade publications, I have five books to my credit, of which Big Island Journey and Kohala ‘Āina, both narrative/pictorial coffee-table books, have garnered prestigious awards. Often asked to apply my mathematical skills, I selectively assist businesses and corporations with their communication, reporting, and outreach needs.

An avid supporter of this country’s literary scene, I am equally committed to writing, reviewing, and editing fiction in novel and short-story form and passionate about coaching new writers. My stories have appeared in several publications.
