I was born and raised in Kentucky. After slogging through a year of college, I signed up for eight years in the US Navy as a nuclear machinist and got to sail the vast Pacific. From camping in the Canadian wilderness to blundering into an anti-American rally in the Middle East, I can’t stop exploring the Earth – the wildlife, the natural and man-made edifices and the fascinating array of cultures.
When not travelling, I brew my own ale, tend my orchard (haphazardly), paint canvasses, keep a little ceramics studio, bake my own whole wheat bread, sew way too many clothes and generally continue my education at my log cabin in a marvelous hardwood forest.
Oh yeah, I have a strange compulsion to put characters who have done no harm to me through arduous trials and quite risky endeavors. I figure since I put Elise t’Hoot, Ricky, Barto and the rest into stories set about 100 years from now, I’ll be long gone before they can hunt me down me for torturing them. That would be in the Elise t’Hoot Galactic Adventure Sci-Fi series.
