Dr. Dale A. Grove is a product developer by day and a writer by night. Possessing a vivid imagination, he has created a variety of stories, new products, and numerous patents during his tenure at Owens Corning, Johns Manville, LNP Engineering Plastics, Tekni-Plex, and U.S. Silica amongst others. Dr. Grove has written five books in the science fiction genre: Gray Maneuvers, Gray Extraction, ELIZA, Loose Strings, and Outlier Revolutions. Furniture for Sale represents a departure from his normal genre; the author felt compelled to write this story based on his interactions with his own parents who now reside in a assisted living facility.

The first draft is usually pretty lousy, and I spend a lot of time going through the book over and over again with the perspective of either adding additional character attributes, scenery, varying sentence structure, adding more intensity, etc. At some point around draft 7-10, I employ an editor to catch my mistakes. Loose Strings was particularly difficult because one of the editors, rightly so, suggested to revamp a portion of the book in regard to Armas' conversion. At the very end, I'm reading it out loud and slowly to try to catch any other mistakes. It's very difficult to catch them all, and it takes a number of editors besides yourself to do it.(less)

The infamous church scene in Kingsman with "Freebird" playing in the background.
