About Me
I'm retired. Once a feature writer for the old NY World-Telegram. After that, I worked for Social Security: first writing pamphlets,then working in the field, lastly writing decisions for administrative judges to sign.

I live in an apartment looking out on the woods, filled with books both read and unread, near family and friends. I like folk and chamber music, but lately have turned into an opera fan.
