BOOKS & BOXSETS
My painting efforts had been distracted by the process of rehabilitating a 150-year-old 15,000 sq. ft. industrial building that my wife and I purchased in 2003. Picasso said, “I cannot work except in solitude.” It seems I couldn’t paint in the maelstrom of renovations, but I can draw while drinking a glass of water and standing on my head.
Over the past three years, I’ve self-published two small editions of my book and a box of flashcards. The first run of 2,200 was distributed exclusively through my gallery in Jim Thorpe, PA. This latest, second printing, an “Artist’s Edition” is printed for lovers of ultra high-quality books.

While working on Daedal Doodle, I was repeatedly asked, “What are these characters stories?” I was trained from birth to listen to talk radio. As a kid, I grew up listening to New York’s WOR, WINS, and WNYC. As an adult I did not stray far–WNYC (which is my browser’s home page) and of course all things NPR. I did not want to write a book of stories as much as I tried to get back to painting, but the repeated nagging question never stopped coming: “What are these characters stories?”
I began to write stories about these unusual characters, weaving my love of listening to National Public Radio into each short story and Radio Stories: NPR Unauthorized Cautionary Tales was born.
