Public Speaker

I frequently recite my poem Sweet Bird of Youth at veterans events and other venues. I also speak about the writing process and my books upon request, as well as the Vietnam War and issues relating to it. (Most folks don’t mind some fishing stories thrown in) I charge no fees for speaking; however I do ask for expense compensation if travel is required.

Feel free to contact me regarding a speaking engagement.
