About the Author

I was born in East Texas a long time ago and grew up with a brother and a sister.

When I was five years old, I found a tattered science book with the first ten pages missing. The first intact page showed a monarch butterfly emerging from a chrysalis. I believe that incident was the ah-ha moment that drew me into the world of science.

While serving in the Air Force in Panama, I wrote a weekly gossip column for the base newspaper and won 2nd prize in a short story contest. During the early years of my career as a chemist and biologist, I wrote numerous technical articles and research reports, some of which were published in trade journals. However, during that time, I wrote no fiction.

Seventy-five years after the monarch butterfly incident, I retired from the corporate world
and began to write as a hobby. Naturally, sci-fi was my genre of choice.
