The material on this website is here for your pleasure.
You will never be asked to buy anything, join a mailing list, or provide personal information. If you enjoy the stories, that’s good enough for me—it’s my way of “paying it forward” for the great life I enjoy.

Quote, witticism, or thought for the day:

Seven blunders of the world that lead to violence: wealth without work, pleasure without conscience, knowledge without character, commerce without morality, science without humanity, worship without sacrifice, politics without principle. -Mahatma Gandhi (2 Oct 1869-1948)


A Little More About Myself . . .

If anybody cares . . .

I was born in 1940 and saw a lot of the world courtesy of the US Navy and careers in electronics, aviation, and the oil patch.

I Iost Mary Lee—my wonderful wife of 38 years—to cancer in 2003.

Via a bit of subterfuge by my younger sister, I discovered that my first love was now a widow. After a bit of correspondence and a hefty investment in Telus, I visited her and found the spark still alive. After exchanging vows in 2005, Rochelle and I bought a home in Red Deer, Alberta.

I still marvel at my good fortune: While many men spend their entire lives searching for the right woman, I have enjoyed the love of two fine ladies. In a time when many people have strained relationships with their children, I can say that my three grown daughters are my best friends.

I am:

  • The author of an adult mystery—The Kitten Burglar—released in November, 2009.
  • The VP emeritus of Writer’s Ink, the Red Deer and district writer’s club.
  • A member of MENSA, IONS, and The Orchid Society of Alberta.

My interests are Paleontology, Astronomy, Comparative Religion, Cosmic Evolution, and—of course—writing.
