Background Information

 That 20-word bio was certainly an exercise in writing. Now to get down to the real stuff.

When did I not tell stories? When my little sisters and I shared a common bed and I was seven or less, I told stories after the lights were out, sometimes carrying one on for several nights. As a teenager, I filled steno notepads with long, drawn out tales, all of which disappeared somewhere along the line.

I read constantly--horse stories at first, then Grace Livingston Hill novels and Zane Grey westerns. I even remember Sunday afternoons, with the whole family sprawled on the folks' bed, passing around "Wild Horse Mesa" and "Riders of the Purple Sage" and Dad exasperated because I wouldn't read the word "damn." But we got through it.

When I left home my real education began. I read science fiction (Azimov's "Foundation" and Blish's "Cities in Flight" and Roger Zelazny's "Lord of Light") and learned there were questions about the nature of the universe and existence rather than certainties handed down to me. I've never stopped reading, studying. My sister introduced me by saying, "This is my sister, Beverly. She wants to know everything." I consider it a compliment of the highest order.

These days I read a lot of science. My latest interest is nanotechnology and all the innovations on the brink. Exciting. Oh, and I'm interested in politics (but can't handle much of what I hear these days) and social issues and environmental issues. But there's just so much a person can pay attention to, and I have lots of creative activities.
