About meWell, obviously, that's not my picture! But I just love it.
I'm 50-something and single. I'm a software developer until I win the lottery, recently moved from .NET to Java. I have a teen son who just got his license, so bear with me if I seem scattered! We both love baseball, as you can probably guess from my library.

About my libraryThe biggest section of my library is devoted to baseball. I have in the neighborhood of 1,000 books, roughly 800 non-fiction and 200 fiction. I also have a lot of private eye/detective fiction. Then just a little bit of everything.

Thank you so much for the review! Any chance you can post it to Amazon on the Kindle edition. Thanks so much again.

Sometimes a dream is all you have.
Hi Dan,

I believe you’ve read my novel THE LAST DAY (Warner Books). Would you be interested in joining the Facebook page for my new novel, THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD & EVIL (to be published by MacMillan, July 2011)? It will feature upcoming events that I think you’ll find interesting.

Starting June 18th, the page will post major updates including the premier of the KNOWLEDGE video trailer. It's unlike any I've ever seen, and I trust you'll feel the same.

Please follow this link and click "Like"--

Hope to see you there!

With much appreciation,

Glenn Kleier
Thank you for taking the time to read my novel, "The Last Day." Hope you enjoyed it. Best wishes...
You are far greater than you have ever dreamed of being. And no matter what you are experiencing in your life right now, trust that all is good and unfolding in your best interests. It may not look pretty, but it is exactly what you need to learn for you to grow into the person you have been destined to become. Everything occurring in your life has been perfectly orchestrated to inspire your maximal evolution as a human being and bring you into your true power.

- From "Discover Your Destiny with the Monk Who Sold his Ferrari" by Robin Sharma
Thank you for accepting my friends invitation. I hope my profile gave you some new insights into Volney, Jefferson and Franco-American history. I will be glad to answer any questions you might have regarding Volney, his views, or book purchases. All Zee Best, TCW
You changed the picture! I'm shocked.
