I live in Eugene, OR, married, 5 stepchildren who I'm mighty fond of. I write books, magazine articles, white papers, documentation, online help... most anything, even buttons for a button company. This year, I expect to pass 8 million published words.
We have four cats: three meatloaves and an orange tabby with ADHD. You'll see lots of cat pix here.
The Babe and I do lots of singing: Renaissance music, barbershop, and other things. So it wasn't just her good looks that attracted me; she's gotta great set o' pipes, too! (MP3s of some of our concerts appear here sporadically, so you can hear for yourself.) We play a lot of gin rummy together at restaurants and we bowl. All this may sound disgustingly humdrum, but I'm just giving you the few points of contact with a consensual normalcy amidst a backdrop of periodic chaos and excitement with travel, conferences, and cruises to exotic foreign shores.
For add’l personal info, look at the Personal section of my web site. This is summary info up to 2002, but it'll give you context if you're getting to know me or are catching up with me from decades past.
