About Me

I live in Eugene Oregon and I worked 35 years with people with disabilities and its rather ironic that i was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, in the prime of my life and my career. I was forced to retire early at 53 due to my symptoms and severe back pain. Getting MS has ended up being a good thing, One day I took down my box of journals from the 70's, 80's and 90's, and I began to write. My paperback boo "The Eve Chronicles" It's a fictionalized memoir and tell my story from when I first moved West to Oregon and lived in the forest doing timber stand exams in eastern Oregon. I lived in a tent and spent the days measuring the timber,around Coyote Springs. Without phones, running hot water or bathroom facilities I lived out in the remote wilderness near Joseph Oregon.
