About this author

I've been a very lucky guy and have done a lot of beautiful things in my life. Like ocean racing sailboats, racing sports cars, traveling, and I've had some great jobs, too. I was a Weather Forecaster, an Astrogeophysical Data Analyst in a solar observatory, a Nuclear Scientist, and even worked in a steel mill as an Inspector on a continuous roll galvanizing line.

And above all, I have been allowed to write and to create some (hopefully) meaningful poetry.

I've authored published books: The Malagasy Tortoise, Orchids to Die For (co-authored with Catherine Burr); a hardback book of poems, Poetry; A Wreal Writers CD story (contributing author); a book of love poems entitled, Expressions of Love. Evi's Blind Date, a humor story; Mnomia's World

James James said: " Only on page 60 but am dead into the story. I was a bit surprised with the coincidence of his encounter with a high up agent. Reacher is Reacher... Off to read more of this brilliant start. "
