I am a freelance writer and researcher and I publish the Black Bear Blog and other websites associated with Skinny Moose Media and Outdoor Hub. I was one of the original founders of Skinny Moose Media. I was born and raised in western Maine, where I lived for about 47 years. Now I split my time between my camp in Maine and my home in Florida. I am co-author of the best selling book, “The Legend of Grey Ghost and Other Tales From the Maine Woods”. I am widely published in numerous online and print publications across the country.
