Meet the Author

Charles R. Schaefer was a U.S. Naval Mustang Officer of the Vietnam era, who enlisted with a Catholic high school education.
After working with electronic technicians for ten years on a naval cruiser, destroyer and aircraft carrier, he went to work for a 27-year career in Bell System Companies, as an engineer, writer and teacher. He introduced technicians and engineers to the workings of electronic switching, automatic intercept, and cellular networking systems.
At the end of the century, he took up music, photography and video as an independent producer, which led him to the current primary pursuit of his work. He uses these tools to explore the shapes and behaviors of the living world, in an attempt to comprehend the nature of the cosmic force that makes 'Life' happen.
His first book "Sensing the Life Force", packaged with a music video DVD, and a 3D music video program for the PC were provocative attempts to share some of the insights he has gained about the Life Force.
Over the past ten years, he has focused on writing, to illuminate some of the enigmatic questions that need to be contemplated, even if they're never answered. In this new fictional novel, "A Dozen Who Deal With It", the author turns to the inner spirit of ordinary people and plays out their actions in the face of adverse and unpredictable circumstances.
He is working to hopefully reveal something about the inner nature of the Life Force that makes 'Us' happen.
