More About the Author
I was raised in the flat, big-sky country of the Panhandle of Texas. I have always been a reader and like many readers have always wanted to write. I have been fortunate to travel widely including living three years in Korea and traveling to Japan, Indonesia, the Philippines, Mexico, and Peru. I have also been to all 50 states and Canada. Language have been a passion for me and I speak several to varying degrees of fluency. I have degrees in Asian Studies, Counseling, and Psychology. As a counselor I have worked in schools, mental health agencies, private practice, and the U.S. Army where I served as a chaplain. I have climbed several mountains, lived on a sail boat. Served in the U.S. Marine Corps both as an enlisted Marine and as an Officer. I have even walked on hot coals. My interests are many and diverse.
