Author's Bio

Currently translating 5th century Sanskrit poet Bhartrihari into English. I expect the book to contain 80-100 poems with introduction and an index of flora and fauna.

A study of West Coast writers, wilderness, linguistics, and bohemian lore, Tracks Along the Left Coast, will be published in May 2017 by Counterpoint Press.
