Profile of John Phillip Olsen

More Information

This profile moderated by John Phillip Olsen.


A graduate of Clarion West '98, and also a part of the Villa Diodati workshop, I'm a writer, reader, a linguist, an English teacher (EFL), a translator, and a pretty good cook.  I'm from California but have lived and worked in eastern France for the last thirty years.  Divorced, with children grown and gone, I find I have a lot of time now to devote to my writing and other hobbies.  Life is good.

I have a blog now.  Here.
