Gary and his dog CarlyGary’s book, “Crashing Through the Underbrush,” is now published and while this website will continue to be devoted to promoting the book, the book will also share space with stories and information about Gary’s service in South Africa in the Peace Corps, where he is an HIV Outreach Worker. He’s working on a second book, a murder mystery about a cab driver in Anchorage, Alaska, and also hopes to write a book about his African experiences.


Crashing Through the Underbrush” contains stories of tragedy, death, and the heartbreak of people who have significant psychiatric and/or other disabilities, and their loved ones. But it also has stories of hope, recovery, stability and the range of human emotions and experiences. It is at times humorous, poignant, sad, exciting, outrageous and memorable (according to Gary), and, hopefully, will make you laugh, cry, and everything in between.

This book is NOW AVAILABLE for purchase. Gary plans to donate 1/3 of his proceeds to appropriate non-profits that support people with disabilities.
