Novelist. Expat returned home.


The Blog

I wrote about my travels and everyday life in the Middle East for several years, starting in 2009. I returned home to Maryland in 2016, and now I don't add to this blog on a regular basis. Travelers considering the Middle East still contact me regularly, though, so I keep this material up as a help--and hopefully an inspiration--to other travelers. I have also did some blogging about life as a novelist, and when my third novel nears completion you'll be seeing more of me here. Feel free to drop me a line; I'd love to swap stories about the Middle East or about the equally vivid Ocean City, Maryland!
