I am married, have two children and seven grandchildren. I graduated from Purdue University in Jan. 1961 with a BS degree in chemistry and from Indiana University in Jan. 1975 with an MS degree in chemistry. I retired as a civil service chemist in Sept. 1999. I've been writing science fiction (SF) since 1975 and more recently romance of the sweet variety. I have six ebooks out at The Wild Rose Press and one science fiction ebook novel at Smashwords and Amazon. I have a sweet romance novel available in ebook form from Amazon and Wings ePress. That novel is based on the characters Leroy and Jody from the short story Lab Partners at Wild Rose only cast in modern times. One science fiction novel and one sweet romance/mystery novel were in print form but the publisher has closed their doors. I'm trying to find them a home. Remaining copies are available from me while supplies last. I have rights back on a short story which I have expanded into a novella. It is entitled Motorcycle Woman and will be available in 2018 as a self-published print book. I have two non fiction books and one nonfiction/fiction book in print available from Amazon, being published via Create Space. I am currently seeking representation of a novel entitled A Reason for Rescue, a sweet romance and adventure story.
