My Experience


    Freelance Writer

    The Basic Art of Italian Cooking - Art of Living
    March 2016 – present

  • - I am currently writing the 4th edition cookbook in collaboration with Maria Liberati and her "Basic Art Of Italian Cooking." Maria Liberati is a world renowned super model turned chef/culinary expert whose Italian food blog attracts several hundred thousand followers.
    In the 4th edition, set for publication in America 4/18, Maria's voice mixes with my prose to personally share Italian culture in an engaging and appetizing way.


    Award Winning Author ​

    Formerly/Occasionally known as: H. Boris Timberg
    January 2013 – present

  • - My discovery of creative nonfiction through my professors at Wilkes University MFA was not only important in a literary sense but also for my own personal peace. Truth is so potent and sharing it is hazardous; if a reader becomes bored then accuracy has accomplished very little. But if like an ancient river a narrative meanders, or somersaults towards appreciation then its value earns interest with every sentence.




    Retired Social Studies Teacher

    Hatboro-Horsham School District
    September 1992 – August 2017

  • - I had the privilege and pleasure of working for 25 years at Hatboro-Horsham public high school teaching AP American History, Political Science, Civics, and World Cultures. As the recipient of several individual awards in education my reputation grew as an advocate for student autonomy and acceptance. I earned a Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction and contributed engaging innovations which helped shape several academic, emotive, and athletic institutions in my district. I worked diligently to encourage students to accept and understand their own characters and share their hearts and hallways with a "world of difference."

 Ed Abbey:

"May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds.

Wilderness is not a luxury but a necessity of the human spirit, and as vital to our lives as water and good bread.

Growth for the sake of growth is the ideology of the cancer cell."
