The Electronic Cottage

Writers Write, Right?


Writing has been a habit that I haven’t been able to kick, after all these years. During high school I wrote the lyrics to a bunch of songs with music written by a Swedish exchange student Thomas Gilljam.

I continued writing during my college years and was able to stage a number of my original plays. I was given a Major Hopwood Award during my senior year at the University of Michigan Residential College for a play about Benedict Arnold called “Exit Benedict.”

Four children’s books of mine are still in print through Benchmark Educational Press, intended for first-grade and second-grade classrooms. For that reason, you need to buy them in 6-packs.
