They are not long, the days of wine and roses: Out of a misty dream Our path emerges for a while, then closes Within a dream. -- Ernest Dowson, 1867-1900 -- Indeed, life is short, but writing recharges my soul by keeping my mind active and my imagination vivid.


Background Information

I worked for 30 years as a tech writer for the Panama Canal Commission and learned how the Canal operates. My office investigated ship accidents in the Canal and I conceived a story based on an accident investigation which became my first novel, The Sage. I followed this with a sequel and then changed direction to write about my community theater experiences. I am presently working on an adventure novel set in the Darien jungle of Panama.

Recently I have enjoyed writing short stories. I like this venue because I can say what I have to say without worrying about length. 

I am an avid reader and my interest covers a wide range of fiction and nonfiction. I cannot single out any one author who has influenced my style. I prefer a simple straightforward type of writing, similar to that of Hemingway.

I am now in my 70's, which is a bit late in life to take up writing.  As long as I stay healthy and take my writers vitamins every day, I will continue the joy of  writing.  

Birth Place
Austin, MN USA
Accomplishments

I was awarded the Silver Beaver for many years of volunteer work with the Boy Scouts of America.
I worked many years in community theater as a stage manager and director. I also organized a drama club at an English-speaking school in Panama.

Additional Information

I am looking forward to showing my grandsons some of the things I have learned to survive in this hectic world.
