The launch of this website

This website is still under construction and will change over the course of the next few weeks as we tweak the design, arrange and edit the wording, and correct problems.  At the same time, I am revising my book, Toxic Justice.  Next, I will be hunting for an agent and publisher. 

Additional information about Toxic Justice and me can be found on, a website hosted by HarperCollins for readers and writers.  There are some very good books to read posted by  fiction and nonfiction writers.  Readers are encouraged to write comments and reviews on posted books.  Writers must upload at least 10,000 words of their books before the book is posted.  Hopefully I will upload my chapters by the end of the week.  Check this blog periodically for the posting date of Toxic Justice on Authonomy.

If you wish to be placed on a Toxic Justice mailing list for notification of publication, please email me,using the address on the contact page and title subject "Toxic Justice mailing list."

I hope that you will take advantage of the links and resources provided to learn more and join me in support of programs and legislation to promote healthier schools, to curb judicial corruption, and advocate effective whistle-blower protection.  At the core of these reforms is respect for human rights, responsibility for the environment, and transparency and accountability for our courts and our government.

In the course of the next few weeks I will post articles of interest about our environment, legal system, politics, and human rights that may inspire you to learn more, and to take the appropriate action. 

All three reform measures, healthier schools, judicial reform, and whistle-blower protection are intertwined.  Our country cannot improve the environmental quality of our nation's schools if its courts and government are strangled by corporate and personal conflicts of interest, corruption, and lack of accountability.  We cannot clean up our courts, our government, and our schools, when whistle-blowers, necessary to expose fraud and corruption, are allowed to be intimidated into silence and all too often fall victim to retaliation.
