Never Spit!


When not hunched over my keyboard I’m doing research for my other vocation as a vintner. This requires visiting as many of the 22 wineries in the Umpqua Valley as I can. My motto: Never spit!

This beautiful part of the country has the distinct advantage of being above water, as opposed to my home state of Colorado.

Last summer when I was in Maine my state caught fire. Good thing I don’t travel more often.

Making good progress on my book; sent the first half to some early readers. If they don’t like it I can always switch from writing to wining.

  1. You would be welcome to visit Walla Walla sometime, not sure about the impact on Colorado, but I think you would enjoy it. We now have over 140 wineries in Walla Walla county and I could give you a tour of the Walla Walla Community College’s Enology and Viticulture Center, located at the number 1 ranked community college in the nation!!
