I'm a nearly lifelong resident of the Bay Area since the 1930s, a graduate of San Francisco State and have been a banker and real estate contracting officer as well as a land use and public transit planner.
In Child on the Home Front I wanted to share my first hand experiences on the home front during the World War II and Korean War eras because as time marches on there aren't too many of us left to tell about it. Many of my stories are about homeland defense and life in the 1940s and '50s, but just because there was a war going on didn't mean a kid couldn't get into mischief. So along with some local history the reader of Child on the Home Front will find a lot to laugh about in the process. The book's ISBN is 978-0-9831764-0-4. You can order the book from your local book seller or Amazon in both print and ebook versions.
