Author's Bio

I grew up on a dairy farm in Virginia and ended up commuting by train to the Pentagon to work on defense budgets. To keep my sanity, I wrote short stories with more than two dozen magazines and journals publishing them. I escaped the long commute and politics to move to North Carolina where I belong to several writing groups and volunteer to help write grants.

I published two novels. High School Rocket Science is about high school students and retired NASA employees launching a rocket using extraterrestrial technology. Evidence of a Commuter Train are twenty interconnected short stories about what happens when you ride a commuter train for too many years.
