This is my story and I'm sticking to it!


    I live in Forsyth, Illinois with Judi, my wife and best friend of over 45 years, and our toy poodle, Ginger.  I lose all domestic votes 2 to 1.  Writing has been a life-long interest ever since, as punishment for being mischievous, I was thrust into a creative writing class.  I've never hesitated to be mischievous again. 

    Four years in the Security Service of the Air Force serving fifteen months in the Philippines and a short stint in Viet Nam in 1965 and 1966 as a linguist, fluent in Chinese preceded 24 years in various management positions with the A. E. Staley Mfg. Co., 

    Then I was promoted to cobbler, owning a shoe repair and retail shoe store for 11 years, closing in 2002, when I became a full-time author.
