About meMost importantly, I have just finished a novel, "Boomer," which I have self-published and will have out in early November '07. I will add it to my library as soon as it is available.
I lives in Eden Prairie with my wife of 41 years, Judy. After teaching English and drama for 30 years in the Osseo Minnesota school district, I retired in 2000. Teaching was a wonderful profession, which gave me a lifetime of memories, adventures and accomplishments. In retirement I am on my second lifetime, equally interesting and filled with adventure. We now have two grandchildren, Carter and Kennedy, whom we loves to Grandparent.

About my libraryMy library comes from my years of teaching as well as reading. It contains a number of favorite authors, Ivan Doig, John Steinbeck, John Irving, Jon Hassler, Anne Tyler and others. It contains many of my favorite works that I taught, "The Great Gatsby," "The Old Man and the Sea," "Tale of Two Cities," "Cry the Beloved Country." It also contains most of the books from a bookclub that I have belonged to since retirement which links me back to my teaching friends.
