I was born in 1949, a "Baby Boomer." Raised near the small town of Kecksburg, Pennsylvania I enjoyed a quiet, uneventful childhood that was fairly typical for those days. My favorite past-times were riding bicycles with my close friends and occasional outings with my parents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. Times were good.
When did you first start writing?
I started writing when I was in high school, but I really didn't concentrate on style until college. After college, I found myself writing more technical works than anything else. This continued until my retirement in 2011 when I began to write some light short stories for my own enjoyment.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Greta Gecko and the Sticky Toe Mystery was written on a whim. My granddaughter had just turned three and I was reading fairly tales and children's poems to her when one evening she asked me if wrote them. I paused before I answered, but it started me thinking about writing for me. My days of writing technical articles were coming to a close. This book has a little of my granddaughter in it, especially the inquisitiveness.
Two close friends embark upon journey to solve an age old island myth about strange disappearances of the sun. Together with Professor Gecko of the Macamya University they set out prove their idea may be correct, but soon learn there may be other mysteries afoot!
