About the Author
The author's multifarious experiences include nineteen years in a Southern California county jail. His career there as a correctional nurse provided him with many stories (some of which are even true and/or publishable) populated by a wide variety of fascinating and arresting characters. He retired, mostly to save his sanity, but also to tell some of those stories. "I think of it as cathartic therapy," he says. He now lives in a forest in Oregon, healing well, now that he has put the final touches a story from his old haunt, the county jail, and writes, teaches, travels, and runs his own software publishing firm. "Ain't retirement great? It's so relaxing."
