About Selby

My writing evokes the soul of complex issues, be they social, environmental, technological or creative. I seek, always, to answer the fundamental question: Why should we care?

We care because we can recognize parts of ourselves even in the unfamiliar. And because we seek to bridge the distances between things we don’t understand.

It is in the telling of stories – familiar or newly unfolded – that our humanity expands.

I’ve been writing for many years in a variety of settings – nonprofits, newspapers, magazines, colleges, advertising agencies, trade associations. I’ve been a staff writer for the American Association for the Advancement of Science, Bowdoin College, Hanley-Wood, Portland Press Herald, Maine Sunday Telegram, and Kennebec Journal and have been a regular contributor to Country Home magazine and Maine Public Radio.
