     My name is Gene Strasser.  There is not very much to say about myself.  I have a passion for creative writing but haven't pursued it for nearly 17 years.  Tried to start that novel but never finished.  Even though I have written a number of short stories I never showed anyone in my immediate family until just recently.  They urged me to start writing again so here I am at Hubpages.

     Interested in science and science fiction.  I have many other interests but I guess I am simply a generalist.  I truly admire a lot of people here on Hubpages who are such specialists about their interests and their topics.  I am amazed at how knowledgeable everyone is.  I can only aspire to get to that level.

     Also interested in fitness and have always tried to take care of myself but I have now ended up being a two time cancer survivor.
