About meI published my first novel, "Back to the Homeplace," released spring (2010) meeting my first major retirement work goal. See: http://eduscapes.com/v2a/back_to_the_homeplace.html
Second novel in series, 'The Homeplace Revisited' released early June, 2011.
I retired in June 2009 after 15 years as a professor of management at Emporia State University, School of Business. I was named Professor Emeritus, which was very humbling. One hobby is genealogy, specializing in 1850 to 1930, but interested in early colonial settlements in Maryland and Massachusetts, in particular. Enjoy writing about my interests, have co-authored one text book, have written over 80 trade journal articles on business acumen, and published three genealogical works, in addition to academic publishing in journals. Recently published three new Genealogy works and one non-fiction booklet - see at: http://stores.lulu.com/drbillshares
