About the Author

Growing up in the 1950s and 1960s in Colorado, I was privileged to experience what is probably one of the last, best times of childhood and adolescence. My own growing-up process extended well into my adult years, through an odd series of 'thises and thats'. WAITING FOR PERMISSION is a true account of 'the last days of life as I knew it", with only the names and dates changed to "protect the innocent".

I now live in the tiny town of Monterey, Virginia, far from the events described in WAITING FOR PERMISSION. I live with three cats in a too-big house with an amazing view. (In my county, there is a calendar view on every side.

I am a part-time clerk at the Highland County Public Library, which must be one of the pleasantest jobs in the world. For almost ten years, I was on the Board of Directors of the Highland SPCA, and I believe that animals get a very raw deal in society. I agree with the man who said that the way to see how far advanced a society is is to look at the way it treats its animals, its children, and its elderly.
