About the Author

I am the University Professor Emeritus of Materials Science at the University of Pennsylvania. I have had a long career as a scientist, teacher and academic administrator. In addition, writing has always been my avocation. My book on gravity (Oxford University Press was my first work for a general audience,.I have published memoirs and essays on CreateSpace and Kindle, and am in the process of publishing several other books. I expect to continue writing throughout my "retirement".My co-authorship of A Darker Shade of Blue, is my latest and by far the most interesting of all my writing efforts.. It presets a part of the career of one of the most remarkable men I have ever met

I spent most of my adult life as a protector of the peace. I began my 34 year career in 1974. Times were very different than. The cop was actually able to police instead of being under the constant scrutiny of the public. Much of it is necessary. But an old timer like me thinks sometimes it's over kill. Society is out of control while more control is being placed on the police. Today's law enforcement officers have a much harder job than I did. The evil is taking over.
I became critically ill in the winter of 2013. I came down with a very rare food born bacterial infection that only 500 people on the planet survived from. The two years it took me to become normal gave me many days and hours to do this. Oh yeah and for those of you who care about what happens to you when you're going out for the count, what you see in that white light. The answer is nothing! So live and enjoy every blessed minute you have here.
This is my first attempt at writing. It would never have come to life without the amazing efforts put forth by my co-author and my beloved father in law. His put breathe and feeling into my words.
Thanks Doc. You're truly a fantastic man.
