About the Author

Okay, I'll tell you about myself, but you have to promise to keep it a secret, just between the two of us. I knew I could trust you! You have an honest way of reading. There are three great accomplishments, in my life: my family, my medical career, and my writings. They are listed in their proper order. My family, including my perfect wife Karen, wonderful adult children Chris and Kim, their soul-mates Eugenia & Kevin, our saluki hounds, give me strength, love, and meaning. What humbling gifts, all of them. I include in my family also all those near and dear (who know who you are so I don't have to list y'all).
Second to my extended family, I am proud of my incredible career as a physician. I'm an Internist and Allergist, and have worked in ER's, hospitals, clinics, homes, and most places between. What a rush! When I say it has been an honor and a privilege, I truly mean it.
My writing is new to my life in the last few years. I have had countless stories in my head for a long while. It is only with the new options which the Brave New World of the internet, including podcasting and print-on-demand, have allowed which have brought me out into public. My other books, to date, are Anon Time and The Innerglow Effect. Writing has afforded me a powerful creative outlet and so benefit me tremendously. In my wilder dreams, I hope my body of literature has sufficient merit, so benefits you also.
Know me best by what I love: Dickens, Orwell, and Tolkien; Milton, Donne, and Blake; Coltrane, Davis, and Desmond; Picasso, Michelangelo, and Renoir; Astronomy, Biology and Geology; Doctor Who, Star Trek, and Doctor Who (times two); Avedon, Doisneau, and Arbus; burger and fries, coc au vin, and pizza.
Have I left anything out? Just one, the most important: God. I'm an ex-Catholic wondering if churches are device of men and necessary in the big-picture. More importantly, I wish I spent more time seeing His wonder in the world (I'm not evangelizing, just passing along information; this is a biography, n'est pas?). Oh, and this has never come up, but there used to be a series of magazine ads where cool looking people were asked a bunch of questions, about what they liked. A standard query was: "What's your favorite word?" So, this really stuck with me. And now I can tell someone, you, my favorite word. Oneself! I love it. It means 'on your own' right, but it also refers to the elf you own! Brilliant word. Now, where did I put that elf....
