I grew up on a family farm in northeastern North Dakota. We were a lower middle class family, struggling to make it on a small farm. My folks were honest, church-going, decent, hardworking folk that kept struggling to feed their large brood, and make their farm business succeed. All things considered, they did pretty well for us. They are both gone now, but I can never repay them for what they did provide.
For the last 32 years my family and I have lived in worked in the Twin Cities area. I have always worked in the facilities field, and have been a building engineer for the last 14 years. God, my wife, my children, work, and writing are the main loves of my life. I hope that I have made them proud.
There are thousands of professional thinkers representing academia, governmental agencies and various think tanks. The advantage to being an amateur thinker is that one 's thinking is not distorted by professional or institutional biases. Living and working in the every day world, and in the marketplace, have allowed me to see the world from a more practical, free market perspective.
As the years pass, and Mavellonialist thought becomes accepted, mainstream and popular, please remember that this outlook grew out of battling hostility, poverty, hardship, ridicule and indifference to bring this wonderful, God-derived philosophy to the world. All in all, so striving has been a joy, honor and privilege. Enjoy everyday, and grow in every way!
Ideas have always been a passion of mine. For 39 years I have been jotting down my ideas, and these three books are the first fruits of that labor and refinement. More books are forthcoming.
