About Me
Invited in my first year English class to major in English, I declined and continued with the sciences. After returning for a degree in education, I took a correspondence course in non-fiction writing and sold most of the lesson assignments. A second course in fiction writing three decades later did not go quite so well.
Type of Writer
Writing Style
My goal is clear, readable prose. Editors seem to like that kind of stuff.
Electronics, robotics, dancing (square, social, and ballroom), reading, cycling, and anything that catches my fancy.
Favorite Genres
Action; some SF, some mystery; I like Dean Koontz's multi-genre stuff.
Favorite Books
Clan of the Cave Bear, Valley of the Horses, The Mammoth Hunters by Jean Auel; Intensity and Sole Survivor by Dean Koontz
Favorite Authors
Richard Cornwell, Dean Koontz, Dick Francis, old SF (nobody literary)
Favorite Poets
Robert Frost, Robert Service
