About the author (2012)

After I retired, I needed something to do. I never was good at writing, but I do love to read. After reading several books that I didn’t think were written very well, I decided to try my hand at it. I’m seventy-seven years old and don’t know how to type, but with two fingers, I’ve been able to get along. I grew up in a small town in northern Colorado. After high school, I enlisted in the navy. I became an electrician, and after four years, I came out and worked on a ranch for a while. With a wife and two kids, I found that ranch work didn’t pay very well. I’ve worked at a cement plant, and after a big layoff, I went on to become a machinist. There I found that the fluids they used affected me. I was forced to quit and found myself as manager of a large off-campus apartment complex. This I did for nineteen years and retired from there. My wife and I are both retired, and mostly we enjoy our free time. When I’m stumped in my writing, I have been teaching myself to paint. The few people that have read my works thought they were fun to read.
