A native of California, Dale spent much of his childhood in Palo Alto and Fresno before the family moved to north-central Idaho in the late 1960s. Over the next four decades, he graduated high school, raised a family, earned a degree in English, and explored a number of career paths, including music store manager, church minister, abstract painter, and museum curator. 2006 saw the redirection of his artistic energies as he transitioned from painting to writing with a focus on literary fiction. Themes that especially appeal to Dale are issues related to poverty, simplicity of living, and spirituality. Wanderer Come Home is his first novel and addresses all three of these themes.
Dale is currently retired and spends his time writing, cooking, Nature-watching, and gardening at his home sheltered in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina with his soulmate, Kathryn, and his Manx cat, Dill.
