People have called me shiftless, perhaps because my careers have included electrical engineer in the aerospace industry, history professor, home builder, solar designer, alternative energy consultant, and technical writer/instructional designer. My writing compulsion began about 20 years ago. Other men golf, fish, carouse, watch tv sports. I write. At last count, 18 novels, 3 short story collections, and a play lurk, mostly unread, on my hard drive. I've not tried to publish anything except the story collections, and those only locally as Christmas gifts. If all goes well, I hope to publish most of my collected writing on Smashwords in the next year or two.

If you let yourself go you can experience a certain increasing warmth as you vicariously move into worlds previously unknown or, as the case might be, partly known but now expanded. They might be called "rainy-afternoon" stories, rather than ones you take to the beach or on an airplane. I would give them collectively four stars, but since Ralph is my brother, I'll up it to five!
