Offering a little something you might not otherwise have


In each piece, I try to offer my readers a little something they would not otherwise have:

  • The western backcountry.
  • The high arctic.
  • The perspective of working as a non-stereotypical gay forester.
  • Biking cross country.
  • … and such …

I have been inspired by my cousin, Lein Shory, who grew up in northern Alabama. In high school, he started writing stories that were so good they won prizes; but so outrageous, by local standards, they were banned.

Up till then I had shied away from writing about anything too personal, too odd, too revealing of friends and family, or that might otherwise get me in trouble.

From Lein’s work, I realize the only things worth writing are ones that could get me in trouble.
