I have a fairly lengthy history in the early computer industry and published on program generators and database. Not the stuff of bedtime reading.In my middle period I invented a mathematical take on insurance agency commissions that allowed them to be viewed as loan collateral. Also not likely to abet sleeping.And now, in period three, I have been writing; fifty or more political screeds published in local Colorado newspapers, a few short stories, some poems and nine novels. The first three of this novel bunch were not very good and were dumped. I have high hopes for the surviving six.My current project is about the herd instinct in society and how it impacts the lives of four individuals. It is tentatively titled, “Murmurs In a Darkened Room”.I am a widower living in Colorado with a very large dog. All of our offspring and their offspring live west of us, stretching from two blocks to California and Oregon.
