About the Author
The authors 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. Aint retirement great? Its so relaxing.
