About the Author

PETER HITT has worked on this book and other stories of his unique experiences as a boy and young man for several years. He grew up on a 270-acre working farm in southern Maryland. After graduating from military school, he earned a co-operative degree in electrical engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology while working during alternate quarters at an electric utility company as a student engineer. Having completed the ROTC program at Georgia Tech, he was commissioned as an U.S. Army officer during the Vietnam War. To the chagrin of the Army brass, he and his newlywed Bahamian wife spent their first year of marriage in upcountry Thailand on an "unaccompanied" tour where he was the officer-in-charge of a remote communications site. After active duty, he worked full-time as an aerosystems engineer helping develop electronic systems for the F-111 airplane while attending Texas Christian University at night and being the father of two young children. After obtaining a MBA degree, he built and managed several cable television systems in Maine and Florida. He and his wife currently own a home inspection business in northeast Florida. Three grown married children have their own successful careers and so far have produced three healthy grandchildren. Peter and his wife, Therese, have been married for forty-eight years, have lived in the Jacksonville, Florida area for thirty-five years.
