I'm a full-time freelance writer. I've written hundreds of nonfiction magazine articles and five nonfiction books. I'm currently (2010) writing my first novel.

I love Charatan, Comoy, Dunhill, Radice, Castello, Ascorti. I've also a few GBDs and Sasienis, along with one Weber (to honor the man who got me into pipe smoking in the first place) and one Kai Nielsen.
