A Little on the Personal Side:
If you weren’t an author, what would you be? I’m assuming this is something other than what I do to pay the bills while I write. I manage a community college science lab and if I were to select a career other than writing, it would be teaching. The college is an excellent environment to work in and being a professor looks like it would be a rewarding job.
What types of books do you read? I read a lot of nonfiction history; military, exploration, survival, they all intrigue me. My taste in fiction leans heavily toward classic literature, though I have a few favorite contemporary authors. We lost two of them very recently, Michael Crichton and Tom Clancy. Other significant favorites are William Golding and Alistair Maclean. I think it was Alistair who really made me appreciate good pacing in a novel.
When you are not writing where can you be found? If I’m not in my lab, I’m on a ball field. My youngest son plays baseball. He’s on a travel team and plays Little League so there are games or practices almost every night of the week. I love ball, but not as much as he does, and that’s as it should be I think. Here in the southwest, the baseball season starts in September and runs through May, sometimes even into June, and during those months my house revolves around baseball.
