This completes my three book triology. But I may not be done yet, keep checking back, I may have a surprise for you!
I was born in a little town in Southeastern Wyoming called Wheatland in 1941. I am the fourth of six children. We moved to a small town of one hundred fifty people called Hawk Springs, Wyoming, when I was six years old.
My father opened a blacksmith shop there, and we lived in couple of tarpaper shacks and later in a granary storage building that my father converted into a house. We lived there for ten years. My school class consisted of only four pupils. During those years, I worked summers for farmers and ranchers.
We moved to the larger town of Torrington, Wyoming, where I finished high school.
I moved to the Los Angeles area when I was twenty-one years old and spent the next fifteen years going to night school, working as an engineer’s aid, a lab assistant in research and development in the aerospace field, a data control clerk, and a computer operator at a large hospital complex.
Missing the sunsets, beautiful clouds, and the breathtaking views of far horizons—and the good people—I eventually moved back to Wyoming, where I worked as a programmer analyst for the next eleven years, and then did the same thing in Idaho and Utah until I retired and returned again to Wyoming. It was in Idaho that I met my wonderful wife.
My hobbies are eclectic reading, playing the guitar, singing (until a few years ago), amateur astronomy, and writing.
I am the father of two children and the grandfather of five on my biological side, and have four stepchildren and fifteen step-grandchildren.
I currently live in Southwestern Wyoming on five acres with my wife and one of our grandsons.
