D.R. has been around the block a time or three, often in different time zones and different centuries. He grew up in costume at a historic site and couldn’t remember if it was 1876 or 1976. Later he studied everything. Music, history, education, psychology, sociology, geology, chemistry and anthropology, then spent 20 years as an archaeologist. Now, by day he works as a research assistant and production supervisor in a high tech industry. By night, among other things, he writes. This is his first foray into the public with his fiction.
