About Me

I grew up in Arlington, Massachusetts. I attended Bates College in Lewiston, Maine, majoring in English literature. During my junior year, I studied at Oxford University and traveled in Europe.

After graduating in 1968, I enlisted in the Air Force, avoiding my draft board's kind invitation to join the army and travel to Vietnam. I married Susan, my high school girlfriend, during leave.

Discharged from the military in 1972, I became a computer programmer. I began writing short stories and a novel, but wasn’t disciplined enough to write much over the next 25 years.

After 35 years in information technology, I retired in the spring of 2012. I had a long talk with myself, “If you want to publish a book, you’d better take writing seriously.” I published a novel, Echo from Mount Royal, in January 2015.

My wife and I live north of Boston. We have a son and daughter and four grandchildren.
