About meSpent a lot of this lifetime being educated.
A top notch High School, taking AP courses. UCSC, and UCLA
a certificate in my professional field at CSUDH, then an MBA also.

Used my diplomas to go from working in the field of law, which I didn't like, to computers, then computer accounting, which led to manufacturing, in the world of woodworking. Which led to more progressive jobs on the manufacturing track, to finally owning a company.

About my libraryScience Fiction was probably not my first genre that I read. It was probably Dr. Suess and Charlie Brown. But Science Fiction and Fantasy is the cornerstone of my library. From that has grown an interest in historical novels and mysteries. Fiction, and then a large section of NonFiction works to make a collection a real library.
