Freethinking Friend
per month
Each of my upcoming books contains 52 essays (plus a "bonus" as an Afterword) first published as weekly columns in the Asheville Citizen-Times.

For a little over a dollar an essay, you'll have the joy of knowing you are participating in my writing collections!
"Secular Saints"
per month
You may not receive my adoration or undying devotion, but I sure will appreciate your serious partnership in my work!

You'll get a personal note from me and Two (2) of my books.




I've been a non-profit leader, progressive minister and interfaith chaplain.  Now, a teacher, author, columnist and humanist celebrant.  Life just keeps getting more interesting!

Patreon supporters are valuable partners in publishing, presenting and promoting my work.

My classes in local colleges explore the Freethought tradition and teach critical thinking.

My published books range from personal stories and essays to collections of natural wisdom and a novella. 

My weekly "Highland Views" columns in the Asheville Citizen-Times have been published with my photographs for three years (I may be the only non-religious columnist regularly writing for a "Religion Page" anywhere!  Many people don't know that I get paid $0.00 for these weekly 800-word essays).

My regular blog posts offer thoughts and images that currently capture my attention.

My nature photographs appear in all of my books and blogposts.

Responses to my writing and teaching are posted on my website.  

Thank you for valuing the work I do!
