Multiple studies have shown that if a young person has no attachment to the land or stars or creatures or plants of the world around them by the second grade, they may forever look at the Earth’s resources and wildlife as mere exploitable commodities to use as they see fit.  

I’m trying hard to prevent this while trying to improve my own situation at the same time. 

Before I started writing books for children, I wrote a book about my real-life journey and my dreams on viral medications, hoping that maybe, out there somewhere, are folks that can empathize with me, who maybe enjoy my writing and might feel ok with donating a dollar or more to help an old guy realize his dreams of having a home and to provide a safety net for old age. 

I left my museum career or as I call it, the life of poverty, just before COVID and now live alone in an uninsulated, over-priced moldy rental with no fridge, in the failed over-taxed inferno of California. But I dream of having a home of my own someday with furniture where I can write, and have a kayak and a garage with a workbench, like my dad did. I also dream of not being alone anymore and maybe finding a ENFP partner...and maybe we’ll be able to go to the beach, without having to fend off roving bands of wooks that steal cool hats AND our car won’t be vandalized when we walk back to the parking lot. And maybe will have a dog.

If you can help with a donation or maybe take a minute to share my plea for help with anyone or any group you think might be sympathetic to my cause and can help, I would forever be most grateful.  I am not skilled at social media and could use all the help I can get.

Remember that if you have a criticism, please let me know via my website, here, instead of on social media or Amazon rankings. One not-so-great comment may never go away, even if I can fix the problem, and it could ruin any chance for me to try to lift myself out of poverty. At $0 - $1.64 in royalties at a time, it might take me a while. LOL.

​ Thank you for your time and consideration
