I like mysteries and crossword puzzles and numbers games. Maybe you do too. Maybe you and I are the same. Both seekers, walking a path that poses more questions than answers.

My teacher and guide, Rascal

I have been practicing Buddhism for twenty years. Somewhere in there, I taught Buddhist meditation a time or two. I write the Writing Like a Buddha blog, offering meditations and exercises to help writers see and experience the world in different ways. In 2014, I also published a “sales-werewolf” novel titled Wolf. Today I live with my Tibetan Terrier, Rascal, in semi-rural Colorado.

I am available for speaking engagements. We can discuss 49 Buddhas, or Buddhism in general, or mystery writing. I can also join your book club discussion via Skype or in person. Contact me here on the site.

I appreciate your interest in the Lama Rinzen Mysteries and the Six Realms. I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you.
