I am a retired aquatic biologist and write short fiction and nonfiction. My writing explores how humans relate to one another and are affected by their environment, both natural and manmade.

For most of my career I worked as an aquatic biologist for the US Army R&D Center in Vicksburg, Mississippi. After I retired, I taught in the Biology Department at Thomas University, Thomasville, Georgia for five years.

In addition to creative writing, I design and construct new and restore antique windows (see the ‘Amberstar Glass’ page), traipse through the woods, read, and tend my garden. My wife and I spend our summers on an island off the coast of Maine and winters in northern Florida.

Some of my publications are on this site. You can contact me at acm8738@gmail.com
