      I am an author of science fiction both soft and hard , science fact, fantasy and horror usually funny in a dark manner on occasion and a little mainstreamish stuff for the not too squeamish.I have been an avid and active amateur astronomer since 1947 I began writing at the professional level in 1956 when, at 16, I went to work as a technical writer and illustrator for Butler Publications in West Los Angeles, CA.A brief break in my writing occurred when I became a naval architect and yacht designer, though I continued to write articles for trade magazines and journals on such things as yacht design, creative mathematics in design, applied physics, etc When I retired , I moved to Mexico to teach some folks how to build small craft, English as a second language, physics and observational astronomy.After that, I moved to New Mexico where I worked at our local high school teaching mathematics, English, journalism, science and, of course, astronomy.I now live in a small corner of New Mexico with my wife, Julieta, our daughter and her recently acquired husband, Alexandra and Sama cat named Nintendo who believes he is human and a dog named Chickie really who knows he s human.
