Most days you'll find me writing either for myself or for one of my clients, somewhere between Denver and my home in Boulder, Colorado. 

My first work of fiction, The Mysterious Divination of Tea Leaves, was published in 2009. A second book, A Heart Blown Open, was released in February 2012, and has won two prestigious awards (including a Silver Medal for Excellence through Nautilus Book Awards). My latest book, The Heart of Zen, was released on April 15th of 2014.

To round things out, I’m a long-time practitioner and teacher of Northern Shaolin Kung Fu and a Zen priest, and bring the same level of discipline and focus to my writing that I do to those two things.

But just so you don’t get the wrong idea, I’m also fond of sleeping in and drinking ales, and have been known to take several uncalled for flights of fancy a day.
