My writing career spans five decades, and includes 15 years as Minnesota stringer and frequent contributor to various sections of the New York Times. I've also frequently published in The Christian Science Monitor, and was a contributing editor at RUNNER'S WORLD during the 1980s. I've published 11 books, most notably "The Lynchings in Duluth," "The Man From Lake Wobegon," "One Shining Season," the short novel "Indians in the Arborvitae," and the short story collection, "Art's Place: Stories & Diversions." I was awarded two residencies at the Anderson Center for Interdisciplinary Arts, and taught for 10 years at The Loft Center in Minneapolis.
