Current Projects

In the early part of the 19th century, many brave men and women crossed the Appalachian Mountains to make a new life on the frontier.

In the far northwest corner of the territory known as Ohio, was a dense dark forest in  a marshland that extended from what is known now as Lucas County to the Indiana line.  This area became known as the Black Swamp.

Now, nearly two hundred years later, I am gathering the first hand accounts of these pioneers in an effort to preserve them for posterity.

The project will take some time to complete.  As it progresses, I will post updates and excerpts on this website.

Another and totally unrelated project is a cookbook.  This is a result of Toni Morrison’s advice:  “If there's a book you really want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it.”  I wanted a cookbook that was comprehensive and gave me recipes in as many areas as possible for sourdough. 

Here is a sample of The Ultimate Sourdough Cookbook.

My third project will be a nonfiction novel but it is still in development and it is too early to post a sample of that.
