About Me
I'm a technical writer and editor (12 years), golf course owner (four years), and select baseball tournament & USSSA director (three years).

I have an 11-year old straight-A junior high school baseball player son, a 17-year old daughter starting UH in the fall who graduated 42nd in her class of 800, and a married daughter with a B.A. in education.

I was making straight As when I dropped out of high school from boredom in the 10th grade. After my second child, I received my GED and registered for college. I graduated (B.S. in Professional Writing) with a 4.0 in four years and delivered the valedictory to my graduating class. I've been working as a technical writer and editor ever since.

Least Favorite Word:

try
There is no such thing as trying. Try to lift your hand. There is only doing and failing. There is no shame in failing if you have given your all. Babe Ruth said, "Every strike brings me closer to the next home run."
