Welcome to my web site! I’m an author as well as a botanist and a biology professor. I’m Dean of Liberal Arts and Sciences at Missouri Western State University, and I live near Saint Joseph on a small farm, populated by dogs, cats, goats, chickens, turkeys, horses, donkeys, and a cow. Maybe someday I’ll start a CSA farm (see Community-Supported Agriculture on Wikipedia.org) and grow food all year around for local consumption. Or maybe I’ll start a private school for the smart kids left behind by current K-12 education. Or maybe I’ll grow weird and exotic plants for sale.
All three are appealing.
