My pen name is Jerry Curtis, but my real name is Curt Smothers. I was born Curtis Jerry Smothers before the dawn of the nuclear age. I use the pen name Jerry Curtis so as not to be confused with one of the Smothers Brothers, who, with the possible exception of the Yo-Yo Man Dick Smothers, aren't usually taken very seriously. I am a retired U.S. Navy officer, former Economic Development Analyst, ex-community college vocational education adviser, and erstwhile computer office software instructor. My best friend (who is also my wife) and I live quietly to the south of Denver, CO, in the beautiful front range of the Rocky Mountains. When we're not out exploring or traveling, I hang around the house and do freelance writing on line for a blogging service called BlogMutt. My degree is in Social Sciences with an emphasis on History. I also hold a Master Instructor Certificate from Microsoft Corporation. My writing experience is mainly in the expository (non-fiction and technical) field, although I have dabbled in poetry and short story writing. I have had articles published in trade magazines of the U.S. Navy and others, college publications, newsletters and press releases. My current interests are literature, the Spanish language, history, politics, and computer technology. Heliu and Squidoo writing sites have provided me a great outlet for my writing interests, which run the gamut of a wide variety of subject areas. I am delighted to be on Squidoo's team as a writer and benefactor of one of this great and popular writer's site.
