Born 1940, currently residing in Elmhurst, Illinois, he participated in civic associations of Boy Scouts, Elmhurst Safety Council, and Elmhurst Auxiliary Police. Married, with three children and eight grandchildren, his reason for writing this novel is that every day we read or hear news reports about foolish decisions made all over the world. He prays that readers of his novel may experience a numinous touch that will help prevent them from making foolish decisions.
