I seem most instinctively to believe in the human value of creative writing as a mode of truth telling, self-expression and homage to the twin miracles of creation and consciousness.” 

John Updike

Three Decades of Stories consists of 34 stories I wrote between 1968 and 2011. Fourteen have been published. Some feel complete while others are in a state of undress. Certain ones will consume my attention in the future. Undoubtedly, others will lay untouched and gather cobwebs. I have compiled this collection for myself and family, friends, or descendants who wish to glimpse my creative process and to share over three decades of my writing journey.
