I started my work life as a special education teacher, working with severely multiply handicapped blind children. After five years, I went back to school and changed careers to Information Technology, working as a programmer and database analyst, first for a savings and loan and then for Uncle Sam. I’m now retired and pursuing a long-standing desire to be a freelance writer.
My interests are varied. I read a lot. Once upon a time I focused on the physical sciences – I used to think I wanted to be a physicist, but Calculus and I didn’t get along. Nowadays I focus more on things like history, health, Christian living, and applied psychology. I also knit, spend time with my family, and try to keep in shape. I have two little “boys” – a pair of pied cockatiels named Petree and Joey.
