Most of my writing has been for magazines at the University of St. Thomas. I’ve always been fascinated by other people’s stories, and I consider myself fortunate to have been able to interview CEOs, doctors, professors, nuns, a member of the Minnesota National Guard, students studying in Rome, and many other men and women. If you’d like to read profiles of interesting people or explore topics such as using social entrepreneurship to tackle the achievement gap, you can find many of these stories through the St. Thomas Newsroom.
In addition to my articles for the University of St. Thomas, I wrote a weeklong series of devotions in August 2002 for Covenant Home Altar.
In November 2015, I published Geek Culture, a coffee-table book about CONvergence, probably the largest volunteer-run science fiction convention in the United States. The book includes the stories of people who make up the convention, such as the volunteers at House of Toast, a party room that specializes in toast with an astounding array of toppings; yoga instructor “Justini Yogini,” who leads yoga sessions based on fanfiction; special-effects makeup artist Bill Hedrick; seamstress Julie Bowman, who sells stuffed dragons; and many other people who participate in panels, host parties, create costumes, and otherwise express their geeky interests at the convention.
My current project is a parody of business self-help books. It’s in the revision stage right now.
I plan to switch gears again with my next book, a Bible study that will include film discussions. Some of the films I may include are The Mosquito Coast, Tanpopo, and The Little Foxes, although none of the film choices are set in stone yet.
