They say an author should have experienced many jobs in his or her life. At the last count, I had experienced over thirty different jobs, the one from which I retired kept me happy for over thirty years.

I have cooked, cleaned, repaired, taught, defended and conducted a multitude of scientific chemical experiments. I was a lifeguard, delivered the morning paper on a sixty mile route, and patrolled the waters of the Atlantic in a nuclear powered submarine.

Now, after having retired from my last job as a senior research scientist for a global chemical company, I am a writer of tales, a creator of worlds, and a crafter of characters.
