I have been writing for more than 35 years, much of it in the electrical and computer engineering realm. Woven throughout all of that technical writing, I have written several short stories—many of them based on a fantasy world that lives in my mind. My characters clamor to escape the confines of my imagination and roam the world at large.
Now that I’m retired from the corporate rat-race, I can spend more time letting those little miscreants run loose on the page. I hope you enjoy reading these stories as much as I’ve enjoyed writing them.
Meet the Author
When I’m not writing, I’m trying to keep my aging Red Australian Shepard, and myself, healthy and happy. He loves chasing the ball, even though his run is down to one throw, then rest for an hour before dropping the soggy mess in my lap for another round. Our adopted chihuahua loves to chase a more appropriate sized ball around the house.
I own a motorcycle and love the “wind therapy” aspect of a good ride. My partner and I live along the Front Range in Colorado, so we have plenty of canyons to ride in which to test our skills. Almost every year for the last 24 years a group of us ride up to Sturgis, SD and bask in the presence of thousands and thousands of like-minded individuals.
We share the summer riding season with camping. Riding tends to take priority because riding season is so much shorter than camping season. When the weather is too wet, cold, or snowy to ride, I like to curl up with a good book or movie.
Living in the “foothills” west of the city keeps us busy in ways that many people question. Living on acreage has its advantages and disadvantages. It’s quiet, but the grasses need mowing and the trees trimmed. Forest fire is a big concern here.
Where Am I From?
I was raised coast-to-coast and around the world. My dad was military, so we moved around a lot when I was young. I’ve lived in Maine, Pennsylvania, Florida, Colorado, California, Nevada, Illinois, and Virginia. I’ve been through almost all of the 50 states. I also lived in Germany and Japan. For the last thirty years, I’ve lived along the Front Range in Colorado. “There’s no place like home.”
