The greatest day of the author’s life was when he was born in San Francisco’s Children’s Hospital. The year was 1943. Things then deteriorated from there, as they do for many.
No street urchin stories have been penned by this author since his father was an extremely successful clothing merchant leading to the author’s rather affluent childhood.
Unfortunately, the father’s business acumen found its way to the son in what could best be described as a light dosage.
Nonetheless, the author did graduate from San Jose State University with an English degree and achieved his first successes in the writing field by penning articles for the university newspaper and by contributing both short stories and articles to the university feature magazine “Lyke.” Further, despite the fact that he wrote entries in his checking account in red ink, he miraculously earned a MBA degree in Accounting.
Armed with theory enough to carry even the most stalwart to starvation, the author actually established successful real estate and financial consulting practices. Of course, success, like beauty, is left to individual definition.
He presently resides in Placer County, California, a picturesque location that has spawned stories from some other writers of note.
