I wrote and illustrated the books shown below between 1989 and 1998. Most of the photographs for the Children’s Furniture book were taken by a photography student in a studio set up in my garage/shop. My son Patrick took the photographs for the Birdhouses book. The rest of the photographs I took. Some of the books are out of print. Others are available on Amazon. I have a few copies of each left. Contact me if you’d like to buy one.

  1. Well, Carolyn! What a surprise. I’m glad to see you here.

    I still like the on-line activities as a creative outlet, and it’s the best way to promote books. But every once in a while I think of chucking it all and becoming a recluse from the Internet. Theres’s a strong likelihood that will happen, though I don’t know when.

  2. Hi, Paul. Got back on line a few weeks ago after years being off. Don’t really know what makes me think of you so much tonight, but I am, and in a good way. And by the way, I donated your autographed “Mapping the Dharma” to the Scio Library some time ago, about a year after coming with Marsha to see and hear you at the Portland book store. It was well received. Much love to you, Carolyn

Your turn!
