Return to Planet Baha’i

In 1999, I was recruited by to provide content on the Baha’i Faith.  My work appeared there starting in January 2000, but in late September 2001 financial problems led to the removal of about one third of their subject sites, including mine.  Shortly thereafter, I created a website call Planet Baha’i to house the articles I had written and continue the work.

Planet Baha’i had a great run, lasting until 2010 when my wife and I founded our publishing company, One Voice Press.  Because we didn’t have time for both projects, Planet Baha’i went into semi-retirement, remaining online as an archive of articles and other materials.

Earlier this year, we suffered a mishap that resulted in the loss of all of our Planet Baha’i content.  Since that time, all I’ve had online is a simple page linking to our Planet Baha’i ebooks (which contain a selection of our best articles).

This week, I decided to recreate the site as a WordPress blog.  You’ll find it at  It will be a far less ambitious project than its previous incarnation.  I will simply be posting  thoughts and meditations from a Baha’i perspective as they occur to me and as I have time.  But I hope that over time it will grow into a useful and interesting resource for people of all faiths.

Stop by when you have a chance.  Thanks!


A New Short Story

I haven’t written any short stories for a very long time, but recently one imposed itself on me, so I wrote it.   I thought I’d post it here as a free sample of my writing for you.  It’s called “In the Butcher Shop.”  I hope you like it.  Feel free to post comments.  (You’ll need to create an account first.  Sorry, but it’s necessary to control spam.)

Stylistically, “In the Butcher Shop” is a bit different from my novels, The Fibonacci Murders and the forthcoming sequel, True Death.  While writing it, I had the curious sense of channeling Ray Bradbury, although admittedly I’m nowhere as good as he is.  Bradbury is, however, one of the big influences on my writing, so maybe there is something to that feeling.  I guess you can be the judge of that when you read the story.
