Bill in Rainier Beach

Hello, and welcome to my portfolio site. I began my writing career as a photojournalist in the Army, starting with a fun job at a weekly Army newspaper in North Carolina. After about four years, I went to an Army magazine in Virginia and got to write for a wider audience. I traveled a lot and had a blast in the D.C. area with a lot of great people, but I felt an urge to move on so I left journalism to go to Officer Candidate School and join the Infantry. I wanted to be on the other side of the interview notebook. I learned a lot, and over the years I scribbled my musings in the form of fiction, non-fiction, screenplays, poems, songs. And I read a ton. I’m attracted to journeys. Everyone’s life is some kind of journey. The trick is to figure out what kind of journey you’re on. I write so I can figure out my journey. I’m seeing signs of progress.

On this site you can read a few shorter works on the Stories page, or you can check out my larger works on the Books page. You will find some other content as well, such as music, photography, videos, some snatches of artwork here and there. These artifacts have helped me figure out my journey of discovery.

Thank you for visiting!
