Welcome To My Habitat


Aquatic places, especially those more rural and less touched, where Mother Nature is accessible and her unspoiled beauty flourishes, is my type of habitat. Writing is my way to focus my deep concerns about protecting those places that badly need stewardship because of their natural resources, biodiversity and vulnerability.

I freely share my knowledge about how to use, but not abuse, these habitats. Places like the Indian River Lagoon, America’s greatest and most diversified estuary, is one environment that I’m most experienced with and concerned about. It’s a system overstressed by an overload of nutrients due to poor land development practices and unwise management of storm water run-off.

My family consists of dedicated water folk. We swim, fish, free-dive, surf, sail, and surround ourselves with all the other trials and tribulations that come with a water folk lifestyle in this new millennium. I write fiction and non-fiction for two primary reasons. First of all, I use my writing to help express our family’s love and concern for these habitats. And secondly, I hope to inspire, educate and entertain my readers about these places that integrally connect us to water.
