I am a people watcher; human behavior fascinates me. I guess I should have studied psychology, but then I would never have met the hundreds of students I have taught. I love to teach; it is one of the things I do best. I am retired now, yet I get to sub from time to time.
In addition I am a writer; creating the characters to populate the stories I write is a passion. About ten years ago I was lucky enough to sell my first novel, Sleep of the Innocents; so, I may correctly describe myself as a published author.
One thing I don’t do well is play golf, but I love the game just the same. I suppose I shall always be cursed for being good enough to play with, yet easy enough to beat. I say I’m getting better all the time, but it is more wishful thinking than true.
Reading for pleasure and learning new things keep me young. Lastly, I am easy going—at least I think I am. Life is too short to worry about unimportant things, and in the grand scheme of things most of the things we fret over are not worth the time we give them.
My biggest flaws? Well, now that I have reached a certain age, I am impatient at times and a wee bit judgmental. I have quite a long road to travel before I am “perfect.” But for now I enjoy just being human.
