I was born in Portland, Oregon in 1951 and grew up in Sandpoint, Idaho. I’ve earned degrees from Stanford University and the University of Washington, and have worked—full– or, as currently, part–time—as a lawyer since 1976.

My interest in creative writing predates the start of my first novel, Beyond the Sand Creek Bridge (2012), which was thirty years in the making.

As passionate as I am about writing, I am even more passionate about an idea that came to me out of the blue in 1985, following a trip to the former Soviet Union. This is the notion that

Sid Tafler Scott,
"human beings—all of us—are both different and the same (we are made up of both human differences and human “samenesses”); that, when we encounter one another, we are (for very natural reasons) drawn to and mesmerized by the human differences we see in “other” (including some that we share)"
