Retired, Author, Owner/Operator at Blackerby Writing Services

I was born a sharecropper’s son and learned electronics in the Navy during the Korean War. After leaving the Navy I married a sharecropper’s daughter, three months after meeting her. I lived in the Bahamas as a civilian on contract tracking missiles during the early days of the missile program. The company did not support families, so my family and I lived in a 3-room shack with kerosene lamps, hand-pump for water and an outhouse. I then spent over 45 years teaching electronics and writing technical manuals for various companies, usually self-employed on contract.

I began writing memories of our experiences and stories about the memories. My wife had a major, damaging heart attack and I became her caregiver 24/7 the last few years. After my wife of 56 years passed away, I began rewriting and reorganizing some of the stories into books and am working on a third in the series, in addition to a series of Bible Studies and other stories/articles.
