It has been a great long-term goal for me to become an author. My plan was to write vast novels when I retired, but fate intervened in the form of being laid off. I began working part time for a company and decided to write in-between work. This prospect has become a real adventure with many unexpected twists. My first book, Interviewing Immortality was just Released on Amazon. I am really excited about this book and the reception this book will receive. I have three more books that are in the process of being edited and made ready for publication. I expect them to start appearing on Amazon in the next six months.
I graduated college at WPI in Worcester, MA and received a degree in Electrical Engineering. I was born in San Diego, California

My real difficulty with writing comes after the book is written. How do you get people to give you a chance and read your book? I still haven’t figured that part out.(less)

Forced Fiction

In the mid-'80s, I briefly got into Amateur Radio. This hobby has many areas to explore, including building equipment, contests, distant communication, travel, and social interaction. My interest faded went I learned about computers, but I still go into the local Amateur Radio store once a year.
In one aisle, they have technical books and a surprisingly large number of Amateur Radio fiction books. Read more of this blog post »
