During my adult life I have been a drill instructor, life guard, short order cook, printer’s devil, federal agent, high school teacher, minister, contractor, psychotherapist - hypnotherapist, and college professor, now emeritus. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Allegheny College, Meadville, PA, and a Master of Divinity degree in Pastoral Psychology from The Methodist Theological School, Delaware, Ohio.
While on the faculty of North Central State College, Mansfield, Ohio I taught twenty-three different courses that covered all aspects of human development and behavior from the womb to the tomb. I created eighteen of these courses especially for the nursing, radiology, human services, and behavioral science curriculums. I am the author of two textbooks, one on human sexuality, the other on aging, and I contributed poetry, essays, and short fiction to the college literary journal.
Echoes of Ellen is my first novel and is available in print and as an eBook. Flood, my second, was published in April, and is available as an eBook. Both were published by SynergEbooks, www.synergebooks.com.
I enjoy writing and even more appreciate my readers' enjoyment of my work.
