Organizations:

I am an 20-year member of High Sierra Writers, a northern Nevada group for which I have provided educational presentations. I've held four Board positions for this group, including the president's post.
More about the group at www.highsierrawriters.org.

Writing as Pjo Riley, I have published two memoirs: Atheist in Church, and Postcards from Planet Eldercare. They are currently available through Amazon.com and book retailers nationwide.
