Ghostwriter If you could have any author –living or dead – write your biography, who would you choose?
Actually, I’d like my life to be told as a video game. But, if someone has to ghost write it, I’d choose David Brendan Hopes. I learned of him from the writer of Scuffed Boots.
I think Hopes would understand a part of my life, an element of me, that is, has been, important TO ME but which I have lived largely in solitude. That is, has been, my relationship with nature. Any biography of me should focus on that, particularly the time I spent in California’s coastal sage and chaparral. There may yet be other hikes and other experiences, but at the moment I think it’s doubtful that anything like those years of daily hiking in all weather in one place will ever happen again. I think David Brendan Hopes would understand those journeys and write about them, and me, well.
