Presently in my 60s but have desired to write, ever since I was told I express myself better writing than I do talking.

After high school, I spent about 15 years in the Army (1970-1985). Nine of those years spent in the history filled country of Germany.

In 187 I was married for about 26 years (1987-2013) to a woman with bi-polar disorder. In 2013 she decided that she wanted her illness more than she wanted to be married and have a family. During our marriage, we managed to be foster parents and eventually adopted one of our special needs foster girls.
I do not usually use my real name on the internet because I have found that the person that lives in the real world is more complex and not as self confident as the persons who contribute to who I am.
