I am a Teller of Tales. In a society where oral tradition dominated, I would be a Keeper of the History. My ability to spin a yarn worked to my advantage for over thirty-nine years in high school and college classrooms where I was able to “do five shows a day” as a nationally recognized teacher and professor.


Since I retired from full time teaching in June of 2012, two of my top priorities have been my granddaughters, Hadley Marie and Harper Ann Downing, and my writing.


I am a Christian and a Life Group Leader at Mission Church of the Nazarene in San Diego, California.
