I am an inventor who works mainly in words, but also in sound and images.

You can follow me on Twitter as AWriterReads and/or RogueResearcher.

Always trying to bring something new and unique to my work, I have made many different things, including 11 published books, the libretto for the opera Kiravanu (music by James Humberstone) that premiered in Sydney in September, 2008; a setting of an excerpted version of W. H. Auden’s “For the Time Being: A Christmas Oratorio” for choir, soloists, brass quintet, and harp; the nearly 1700 international worksheets for the Sibelius Notation Software Worksheet Creator, based on the music curricula of the US, UK, AU, NZ, and Canada; collage interpretations of portions of Gabriela Mistral’s “Decalogo del artista”; and a highly-regarded recipe for peach-berry pie.

My most recent publication is Barron’s American Slang Dictionary and Thesaurus, and I am currently working on the first novel in a quintology as part of NaNoWriMo 2009, finishing up the illustrations for the 2010 release of Barron’s AP Music Theory by Nancy Scoggin, and finishing drafts of several children’s books that aim at having enough depth to stand up to many, many readings.
