More About the Author
Douglas Winslow Cooper (1942- ) is a freelance writer, a retired physicist, a caregiver, and a rational optimist. From his early years in the shadow of New York City's George Washington Bridge to his early retirement by sunny Lake Osiris in Walden, NY, to help care for his beloved bedridden wife, Tina Su Cooper, he has found that indeed "the world is a tragedy to those who feel and a comedy to those who think," agreeing with Horace Walpole.
On June 2, 1984, after twenty years apart, former college sweethearts Tina Su (born Su Ting-ting) and Doug Cooper married. Their wedding rings are inscribed, "A dream come true." After more than 25 years of being married, they still feel that way, their motto being: "Together forever." The Coopers' marriage has been filled with joy, laughter, and occasional sorrow, due to her increasing disability from multiple sclerosis. Their glasses may be half-full now, but what remains is precious.
Dr.Cooper's first book was his 1974 Ph.D. dissertation for Harvard University. A dozen printed copies more than filled the public demand. Tina and Doug hope to reach a wider audience with TING AND I to share some lessons learned about life, love, loyalty. They invite you to write them at email@example.com.
