Born in TX and grew up in Minnesota, as you can tell by my lack of accent.
BA in classical Greek, MDiv in ancient languages.
Lived in Minnesota, Georgia, Texas, Illinois, Iowa, Florida, Maryland, and now Delaware; worked for IBM, Gateway, MBNA, and several other big names, mostly as a contract tech writer.
I've been a radio announcer, pastor, teacher, energy auditor, sales trainer, and lots more.
Nowadays we (wife, 3 kids, 2 dogs, some chickens) have two wooded acres in DE and I write for Bank of America in Newark.
I ride a motorcycle as my main transportation when I'm not walking. I like photography, astronomy, camping, and have a couple web sites, mainly The Writing Rag and Mushrooms to Motorcycles. Our ongoing project is to turn our place into a reasonably self-sufficient homestead. We have pasture, chickens, and garden plots so far. Passive solar house. A contractor who ran off with my money instead of building an addition to the place did time in prison. So far he's paid back a pittance of the hundred grand he owes me. ENTJ, Conflict avoider; I make a bad enemy, though..
Five natural and three inherited kids, 15 or so grandchildren. Member of Mensa and the IBA. Two STC awards. Coiner of the word "pretentiousism," referring to a bigger-than-necessary word, especially when used incorrectly.
