Native Northwesterner. Degreed in Biological and Developmental Psychological Sciences. In days past worked in Alaska, and the Washington State Community College System. Recent retiree to S. CA. I observed, while babysitting my grandchildren, that there are not many books for the emerging (tweener) reader ages. One retirement pursuit for me will be to create good quality,fun,adventure stories for those readers. Fun, whimsical stories that are well anchored in solid science & history. Five completed so far. Look for more soon. There! That said, now I'm committed. That will motivate me. Plus my grandchildren and friends are asking for more.
Other pleasures include summer mountain day hikes,vintage cars, desert biology, old towns, intermediate winter skiing, coffee, and friends.
