About me

Industry Publishing
Occupation Writer, editor, publications manager (retired)
Location Shelton, WA, United States
Introduction I am not a professional, academic historian, but a long-term student of history. I have a BA in American cultural history (Tulane, 1967) and five years of post-baccalaureate work in languages and history (Portland St. Univ., 2000). I am a member of Phi Alpha Theta history honors society. My central purpose in life is to tell success stories from history. My latest book is The Power and the Glory: The Key Ideas and Crusading Lives of Eight Reason vs. Faith Debaters, available at reasonversusmysticism.com/.
Interests My four highest personal values are my work; my "free-range" walker's lifestyle; my friendships; and my favorite leisure activity -- reading adventure stories, mysteries, and others that are success stories.
