About the dodgy author, a man of knavish reputation, apocryphal credentials, inconsequential means, and lowborn acquaintances:
I worked indoor jobs (editorial, teaching) until I was 26. Got real bored, and it sure didn´t suit my self-image as a writer, always shut up inside. So I wandered for 10 years (the western States, Canada, Mexico, Guatemala) trying on new experiences for size: ranch hand, farm laborer, gardener, janitor, small-town news reporter, consultant for tribal clinic, martial arts instructor, stuntman in production company, movie extra.
I now rent a little house on a cattle ranch in Uvita, tending my organic veggies and pampering my bantam chickens. I'm a fishing guide there and also offer instruction in Chi Kung,Tai-chi Chuan,and Shaolin.
Besides ROOT AND BRANCH, I've written, performed in, and produced 35 DVDs in the fields of health, exercise and martial arts. All these I peddle on my website http://CHUAN-FA.tripod.com and on Smashwords, CreateSpace, and Amazon, as well as two non-fiction works, THE MASTER'S MANUAL: CHUAN FA KENPO CLOSE COMBAT ARTS and ESOTERIC MARTIAL ARTS OF ZEN.
