I was born in Los Angeles into a happy middle class family, with two older sisters and a younger brother. We all learned to read at early an age because our mother was an elementary school teacher before she married, and we were introduced to the “Wonderful World of Words.” I was an avid reader and spent much of my free time on the bench in front of the bookcases in our front hallway.
I spent 2 years in the U.S. Army just after the Korean Conflict. Shortly after I got home from Korea I met and married the most beautiful girl in the world; Bonnie Jean, who has stuck by me all these years and who gave me three gorgeous, intelligent daughters.
I joined the Culver City Police Department and retired after twenty years of service. For the next twelve years I worked at various security jobs and finished my working career with five years as Security Manager for the Los Angeles Mission on “skid row” in downtown L.A. until I retired completely from work in June of 1995.
One of the books I read the most, being raised in a Christian family, was The Bible and I was fascinated by Old Testament history; primarily the first chapters of the book of Genesis. I had many questions which my parents and teachers were unable to answer to my satisfaction, so I began a study of ancient Biblical and secular history in an attempt to resolve these questions.
Some of the ideas which particularly intrigued me were the possibilities of “Pre-Adamic Man” and the alleged “gap” between Genesis 1:1 and 1:2. Out of these studies came the idea for part one of Exogenesis and all I had to do was fill in the middle.
Real work on the book didn’t start until after I retired from the Police Department and it was set aside many times for many reasons; mostly work, school and raising a family, and was only taken up again seriously after we moved to Prescott, Arizona, in 2005. Several medical setbacks gave me a lot of spare time while recuperating, and the book was finally completed in 2014.
