Now retired, I lived and worked overseas (Asia and Europe) for many years during a lengthy career with the CIA. I served in the Marine Corps (4 years) and am a 1965 graduate of the University of Oregon. I'm still married (51 years) to my first true love and have one son and two grandchildren. My formative years were spent in Colorado, Idaho, and Oregon; I have lived in the Washington D.C. area off-and-on for the past 45 years. My enjoyment of writing and a life-long interest in religious thought and behavior combined to produce "Answering Aunt Bertha."
