On a dare from my children, I wrote a memoir (Yesterday) of my early years. I attempted to expose them, and their children, to the Great Depression years, the WWII, and the compliant decade that followed. Writing about the years after I turned twenty-five became tenuous as now I was exposing people who are alive and might object to my stories’ skew. So I switched to fiction and settled on a trilogy that would encompass the turbulent sixties, a fascinating decade during which I lived in Singapore and London. Extensive travel in Southeast Asia and in Europe formed the background for the first two novels (Counterpoint and Focus).
My Swedish wife, Marianne, and I now live at the north end of Lake Tahoe where we enjoy nature in its perfect form, as well as skiing, biking, hiking, and kayaking. We cook, garden, and read and critique each other’s writing. Five children are spread around the country doing interesting things.
