David C. Heyman, M.D., retired after forty-three years in the medical practice of anesthesiology. Renewing his interest in creative writing, he is now pursuing ideas that he recalls from talking with patients, raising four children, and keeping up with current events.
His first printed book is Money Grows on Trees! Economics for Teens, in which his main motive was to tell his grandchildren how hard their parents had to work to provide for them. Next, he wrote two eBooks—the first two plays of a series called Neighbors—based on families in rural Pennsylvania during the gas-drilling boom. Recently, he wrote Slip of the Tongue, a dark morality play about a small-town radio talk-show host. Coming soon will be a series of iconoclastic, humorous stories called Ether Frolics.
He lives in Montoursville, PA, and enjoys reading and participating in local cultural events. He also plays the piano for challenge and relaxation.

- Say for me Kaddish, An Engineer's Life and Advice
on Nov. 03, 2010
Why should I become an engineer? Why should I waste my time learning about chemistry and physics? So asks the young person at the brink of his career. Has my life as an engineer, a doctor, a scientist, or a professor enlightened me? So, asks the mature person.
Alan Wilcox has lived an engineer's life:creating,repairing, and teaching. By presenting his memoirs from childhood on, he interweaves coincidence and spiritualism and the enlightenment of Torah. In first-person plain talk he recalls incidents from his youth. For example, he recalls playing with a model airplane with his father. Later, he learns to fly and buys his own airplane. As a boy, he starts a fire by trying to find out if steel wool conducts electricity. First lessons in electronics, of course, are not easy. Curiosity leads him to find out how automobile engines and radios work. Most of all, he shows us how we develop and achieve our goals.
I would recommend Alan's book to anyone thinking of a career in science, and men and women striving for enlightenment and meaning in their lives.
