In short

  • I am a computer technician, though I have always had an interest in writing.  I have produced some very bad poetry, with one or two that were nearly acceptable.  I am interested in history, flying and good movies.  I have two sons, five sisters and one brother.  This is my first foray into narrative non-fiction.

  • I once put a dent in the roof of my own automobile with a .22 caliber rifle from less than two feet away.
