David Rucker

Biography

Native Northwesterner. Degreed in Biological and Developmental Psychological Sciences. In days past worked in Alaska, and the Washington State Community College System. Recent retiree to S. CA. I observed, while babysitting my grandchildren, that there are not many books available for the emerging (tweener) reader ages. One retirement pursuit for me is to create good quality,fun, adventure stories for those readers. All, even the fun and whimsical, will be well anchored in solid science & history. Those of a more factual bent will be anchored with fun and whimsical components.

Other pleasures include summer mountain day hikes,vintage cars, desert biology, old towns, coffee, and friends. My writings will draw from those areas of interest and experience.
