About Me

Retired college prof, Purdue University (1973-2011). He authored too many professional books (32) in mind-numbing 'academese.' Since retiring, he would like to think he's writing fiction and nonfiction about identity crises, border issues, ethnic interrelations, and mental glitches of multiple sorts, and now finds himself floundering in whirlpooling word cascades that incessantly sweep him along. Yet, he managed to finish THE AFRO-BRAZILIAN ART OF COPING that emerged from his experiences in Brazil two to three months a year from 1991 to 2011; a coming of age trilogy, FINDING HIMSELF: From New Mexico to the Sierra Madre and Back, LOOKING GLASS KILLER, and THE DILEMMA: Who is Matt?; a bizarre adventure story, ENIGMAS: Gold Fever, Space-Time Warps, Sierra Madre Magic; and the first volume of a sci-fi trilogy that will be out within three months, NOW IS TOO SOON: Untangling Future Memories.
