About Me
I grew up on a small ranch in a rural area. I learned to do hard physical work on the ranch, in the orchards, and in the woods. Taking those lessons to heart, I went to college and studied Electrical Engineering. I married a great woman and we raised four good kids. I worked with CNC machine tools for 16 years and then began writing. I wrote maintenance manuals for jet aircraft for 20 years, then took an early retirement/layoff buyout offer. Now I'm a lap for lazy cats and write poetry for fun.
