Born and raised in the city of Northfield, Minnesota. Graduate of Hamline University in Saint Paul, Minnesota with a B.A. in Mathematics, and with a teaching certificate. Commissioned as a 2nd Lieutenant in the United States Air Force; trained in communications/electronics at Keesler Air Force Base in Mississippi; and served as a tactical communications officer at K.I. Sawyer AFB in the upper peninsula of Michigan. Upon completion of military service, returned to Minnesota and began a career as a computer programmer. After programming for several years, became a computer consultant and worked for several different companies before retiring.Growing up I enjoyed reading and collecting super-hero comics. I eventually stopped collecting comics and started buying anime instead. I’m also an avid reader of science fiction. The stories that I write are also in the science fiction genre, with a little bit of fantasy mixed in, with gender bending themes, and with lots of action/adventure.
