About Me
Born in Santa Fe, New Mexico, I was a child of the Atomic Age. My parents had moved there during WWII attached to the Army Medical Corps because they were building the Atom Bomb in Los Alamos, about 26 miles away. Growing up there, I met a broad array of the most interesting people you could imagine, and had the Chinese curse laid on me when I was 14. They say you talk when you cease to be at peace with your thoughts. I feel the same is true of writing. So much needs to be said....
