Writing

My new book, Spinning in Place, has been published by Frowning Cat Books exclusively for Kindle. Subtitled “A Secular Humanist Embraces the Neo-Pagan Wheel of the Year,” the book outlines a this-worldly approach to spirituality for the scientifically-minded. Check it out on Amazon or right here:

In Print

I’m honored to have essays in the following collections:

Please Forward (UNO Press)

Godless Paganism (crowdfunded)

Finding the Masculine in Goddess’ Spiral (Immanion Press)

I also have a piece of short fiction in the spring 2015 issue of Red Rock Review.

Online

I write two columns which are available online: Mid-City Messenger and A Pedagogy of Gaia.

There’s also an extensive archive to be found in my personal blog, b.rox. (Most active from 2004-2012, it was named one of the ten best blogs from New Orleans.)

One of my favorite essays is “How Streaking Saved My Life,” which was published in a now-defunct alternative weekly way back in the 1990s.

Collaboration

I collaborated with dozens of writers around the world to author “A Pagan Community Statement on the Environment,” which has since been signed by thousands of people from many different countries, representing many diverse forms of what might be called contemporary Earth-based religions.

Connections

Of course it’s all interconnected. I write in my work as a faculty developer: see for example my series of essays on Contemplative Faculty Development. I write as a form of advocacy: see my essay on how Friends of Lafitte Corridor got started. My spiritual practice both informs and supports my writing: see my aforementioned column, A Pedagogy of Gaia. Same goes for media arts: see my essay on the first season of ROX.

Addendum: Books About Me
