I am a sixty-four year old male with three adopted adult sons and a wife of forty-four-years. I am retired and working on my 3rd, 4th, and 5th manuscripts as well as a handful of rotating shorter compositions. I have short stories on the two websites below. In the past I have been a Psychotherapist, Professional Portrait Photographer, furniture Designer and Builder, an Upholsterer, and an Intensive Care Foster and Adoptive parent. I have an AAS, BS, MS, and MA. I am a member of the LGBTQ Community and came out this year. I often write on LGBTQ issues.
