Now living near San Diego California with his wife Bonnie, a cellist, and their two dogs, Cookie and Issabella. Conner spends his days fostering kittens, gardening, crafting beautiful stained glass and creating worlds on the page.
After a lifetime of destruction the thought of creating something tangible and lasting holds great appeal. He found art carthardic and way to redefine himself in his own eyes and the eyes of others.

Peace of the back yard
My garden is as much solace as my writing. The sound of water, hawks calling and sparrows arguing over the mornings bird food. It is a great place to read and write.
We have chickens, koi, dogs, neighborhood cats that visit and of course tons of songbirds.
My wife and I work with the local Humane Society to foster kittens.
We take them from days old to weeks. Sometimes mommas just reject the kittens and we get a call.
Feeding them from bottles to weaning them to wet and dry food is a rewarding task. It is hard to let them go but they all go to good homes.
