About This Author

Biochemist/Biophysicist

Disappointed to learn no secret handshake accompanied PhD.

Some former occupations - US Army, OTR Truck Driver, Credit Analyst, Graphic Arts & Printing

Avid reader and inveterate tinkerer.

College football fan. (Go Boise State! I'm an alumni, so don't call me a bandwagoner...)

Yet another writer whose best-selling novels languish unwritten.

Opinions and positions on issues fall throughout the political spectrum.

Believe a polarized public is inevitable when platform issues come to define political affiliation in a two-party system of government.

Extremist Moderate is a member in these Nations:
