I am married, have two children and five grandchildren. I graduated from Purdue University in Jan. 1961 with a BS degree in chemistry and from Indiana University in Jan. 1975 with an MS degree in chemistry. I retired as a civil service chemist in Sept. 1999. I've been writing science fiction (SF) since 1975 and more recently romance of the sweet variety. I have five ebooks out at The Wild Rose Press and one ebook out at Red Rose Publishing. I've been submitting my SF short stories and romance short stories. I have written five novels but have been unable to gain representation of any of them. My most recent romance novel takes the characters Leroy and Jody from my ebook Lab Partners and cast them into modern times.

A wonderful, light-hearted story, Runner's High is an original and sweet romantic tale featuring an interesting take on the May-December romance. Providing a fun plot line about the love of running, I learned a lot about how runners think. It's easy to feel the passion the author has for the sport; it's quite motivating. This setting creates a unique backdrop for widower Ted Stoddard and the beautiful, young Hillary, who are in a running club together and attend the same church. As their relationship progresses from friendship to romance, it's endearing to hear Ted's concerns about the age gap even as he treats her with the respect every woman of any age deserves.
Larry Hammersley write clean, crisp dialogue you don't want to skim over. He has an admirable gift for using quaint expressions that drive imagery and description. An excellent, compelling short read, I look forward to reading more of this author's books. His inspirational story lines, gentlemanly voice, and passion for living in the moment will appeal to romantics (and runners!) of all ages.
