I self-published three books of tunes:

I occasionally do an online column for Mel Bays' mandolin website:
I've written some articles for the Belgian magazine, Goe Vollek, and I'm their regular contributor for their "grenspost" column (about what's happening in the US folk world):
  • Amerikanen hameren erop los. Goe Vollek nr. 1 2002 4-9.
    (Article in Dutch about the history of the hammered dulcimer in the United States)
In the Dulcimer Players' News there's a little article called "Dialoog van viool en hakkebord".
I'm working on editing a selection of contradances by Julien Clarchies, a mulatto fiddler from Curaçao who made it big playing contradances in Paris in the days of Napoleon.

I've edited a couple of books of the music of Maggie Sansone, hammered dulcimer player from Annapolis:
I did the typesetting for the tunebook of my friend Jonathan Jensen, Candles in the Dark. Some great compositions!
