People have called me shiftless, perhaps because my careers have included electrical engineer in the aerospace industry, history professor, home builder, solar designer, alternative energy consultant, and technical writer/instructional designer. My writing compulsion began about 20 years ago. Other men golf, fish, carouse, watch tv sports. I write. At last count, 18 novels, 3 short story collections, and a play lurk, mostly unread, on my hard drive. I've not tried to publish anything except the story collections, and those only locally as Christmas gifts. If all goes well, I hope to publish most of my collected writing on Smashwords in the next year or two.

Terrific read. Enjoyed how the story unfolded and how social mores limit the most human of feelings and thinking. If I write anymore, I'll spoil it. Author did a commendable job creating the ambiance of Victorian England and the emotional textures of the protagonists and the letter writers in question.
