When I was a kid, I didn’t want to be a policeman, or fireman, or astronaut, or major league third baseman. I wanted to be a forest ranger.

Okay, also a major league third baseman. Y’know, as a summer job.

But it turned out my inability to comprehend biochem made a career in wildlife management as realistic as my chances of starting for the Dodgers.

So, after four years at Oregon State University I declared myself graduated, and returned home to Southern California. There I taught swimming, karate, and pre-school while I sold articles to various magazines, wrote children’s shows for The Disney Channel, and eventually became a full-time writer.

And because one of my childhood dreams lives on, I now write novels focused on the dark underworld of wildlife trafficking, and work with various wildlife, marine mammal, and feral cat/kitten groups as a rescue volunteer along California’s Central Coast.

I’m still waiting on that call from the Dodgers.

I live by the ocean in Cambria, California with my wife and a clowder of cats.

Otter Tracking

As a volunteer with The Marine Mammal Center’s Morro Bay facility, my hands-down favorite critter is the Southern (aka California) sea otter. Sea otters once numbered in the hundreds of thousands, but due to their amazingly dense fur (170,000-1,062,000 hairs per...

Is it Wrong to Feed the Birds?

In my experience as a wildlife rescue volunteer, I’ve had numerous chats with people who feed the local critters. They toss out scratch for wild turkeys, fruit and veggies for the deer, kitchen scraps for the raccoons. They hang hummingbird feeders, fill bird feeders...
