Currently, I am spending my retirement in much needed reading and writing. God has provided to me this golden era to relax, have fun, and enjoy life. However, for many years, I was intensely involved pursuring an education in the academic world. Most people who knew me considered me to be a professional student. However, after spending nearly twenty years in colleges and universities, I was fortunate to earn six college degrees, including two graduate degrees. At the same time, I entered a professional career in the computer profession eventually getting into management. During this time, I was able to do a lot of overseas travels, having traveled to Europe several times (Rome, Paris, London, and Amsterdam). I also have visited three of the largest cities in Canada (VanCouver, Toronto, and Montreal), and many of the islands in the West Indies, and several cities in Mexico including Mexico City. I have also spent some time in both Japan and Korea. Later in my career, however, I became a published writer. Although I am strictly a Christian writer, I write both fiction and non-fiction. I am the author of two novels currently on the market:(1)An historical Romance (Lavina: The Saga of an African Princess), and (2) Biblical fiction (Ruth of Moab: Triumph of a Daughter's Love). Additionally, I am an avid Bible reader - having read the entire New Testament in three different languages (English, Spanish, Greek). I am currently studying Hebrew to be able to do more study on the Old Testament and Israel. Lastly, I am also an active Pentecostal minister in the COGIC faith.
