I live in Wichita, Kansas, and teach physics and physical science at Hutchinson Community College. My students are the inspiration for much of the sophomoric humor in my writing. Living in Kansas, I am surrounded by political conservatives. This is fortuitous because it provides fuel for my novels. I have a B.S. in physics from Kansas State University, an M.S. in physics from the University of Illinois, and a Ph.D. in physics from K-State. My politically conservative wife and I have three adult offspring and two grandkids.
