Where narrative begins…

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

In a little coconut shell: I am fortunate to write and live in North Kohala, a rural peninsula on the Big Island, and I always welcome new, interesting projects. An independent writer, I specialize in environmental issues, covering conservation, sustainable agriculture, climate change, and energy. My fiction and non-fiction can be found in numerous publications. And I am the author of the award-winning books Kohala ‘Āina, a History of North Kohala, and Big Island Journey. There is more about all this on the other pages, so please browse.
