This is my wife, Margaret, and me a few years ago in Minneapolis. We were married on Oct 5, 1991 and believe it or not, it snowed that day, but it wasn't a harbinger of things to come. There have been very few cloudy days in our marriage and I feel fortunate that I found such a magnificent woman.
Margaret has retired after working for Land O'Lakes, Inc for 21 years and has now become an artist. I retired after a thirty year career in real estate. We moved to Austin, Texas in the fall of 2010 where I've begun my second career as a writer.
I've always loved to read books, even when I was in grade school. I enjoyed the way a good novel could sweep you away from your reality and drop you in someone else's. I never had enough time to spend writing until an unfortunate illness forced me into an early retirement, but you know how the old saying goes, when fate hands you a lemon...
