The Travel Crossword book's contents can be partially looked at through Google Books. I've created 2 cryptic crosswords related to software quality assurance that are at here and here. I have 4 puzzle claims to fame:
I won a GAMES Magazine contest (Palindromes with Personality) with the following entry: Lisa Bonet ate no basil. Weird Al Yankovic included it in his song "Bob" (please look up the video on your own -- I've taken down the link after someone hotlinked it to my site).
I competed in a palindrome championship which got me featured in the 2019 film The Palindromists (more fame may ensue once it is released). And remember, once you write the first half of a palindrome, the second half practically writes itself. See my Java code (palrobot.java) to generate your own palindromes from text file wordlists here. Compile the Java code, then execute by saying something like "java palrobot fname lname" or "java palrobot adj noun -s verb adj noun -s" or "java palrobot web2a.txt web2a.txt", where fname, lname, adj, noun, verb and web2a.txt are text file wordlists (one entry per row which will be parsed down to an alphanumeric string).
I have written the books mentioned above, as well as magazines (including Justine Magazine and Ghost! Magazine), newsletters and companies. I am part of the National Puzzlers' League, where I became known for anagrams (transposed letter arrangements with the same meaning). I am also a regular at the American Crossword Tournament.
