I was born and raised, educated and married in St. Paul, Minnesota and occasionally maintain an ordinary Minnesotan lifestyle. I have four children, nine grandchildren and three great grandchildren.
Thirty years ago, in spite of having a promising job in a large corporation, I started my own business and leaped into a dramatic change in lifestyle.
I started nine businesses, a couple of them successful. I travelled across the US, Latin America and Europe, started two businesses in Barcelona Spain. I wrote uncounted technical papers and spoke in technical seminars in many countries.
During this period I also wrote numerous short stories and a couple of novels but I had no time for publishing and promoting my writing. Now, finally with a little more time available, the writing is getting some much needed attention.
I have three books on Amazon (click on ‘my books’ tab to see them), two novels and a collection of short stories. I am currently working on my second novel which I expect to have out in January.
I now spend my time writing, working on social justice issues and enjoying my family.

    Your question is an interesting one. I think when people talk face to face, the conversation goes in many directions and it’s nearly impossible to talk through an idea. Had we started a conversation on something like my posts, we would have talked about the business and what my partner is doing now and what is Las Ramblas and “tell me about the church there” and on and on. When it is written, there is no opportunity to take new directions and the entire idea can be expressed.

    Wow!! My brother, the author! What fun to read your thoughtful insights into life. Now here’s a “why” for you. How come people don’t talk to each other about the things that are near and dear to their hearts?
