About Me

Nearly everything on this site is true. I am an Aiken, that is true. And more. I do live in Vermont. Also true. The stories about my family and family friends are true – so say I. I was a little kid back then. Part of this website involves reconciling with my long dead father. I’ve come to appreciate the lessons and opportunities presented to me, even though I spent most of my adult life running away. I did. I ran.

My mother was a visual artist. Both of brothers are visual artists and writers. Both have had their photographic work published. One brother spent a lifetime writing travel logs that were published widely through well-known journals. One brother spent a lifetime painting and taking photos of those around him.

There is a work of fiction I am publishing that must be obscured with a pseudonym. Like so many writers, I borrowed my mother’s name.
