Born in Mobile, Alabama. Educated in public schools in Mobile County until graduation from high school. Attended the University of Alabama from 1964 to 1968. Graduated with a degree in Chemical Engineering. During my sophomore year, I married Janet McCrary. I have spent nearly 40 years working in the chemical manufacturing business - from production engineer to CEO. We have two children - Andrew and Mollie - and four grandchildren - Jenny, Poppins, Miles and Jules. Janet and I have lived in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Fresno, California and Ridgecrest, California. We moved back to Alabama in 1994 and I started my consulting firm. We have travelled extensively around the globe but are now convinced we have found the place we need to be. I started writing in 2007. My first book was a science fiction book titled "Forest Man". Since then I have written two others, including a science/philosophy/theology book titled "Beyond a Reasonable Doubt -Should a reasonable person believe in God?" It is an apologetics book written for those people who have little or no scientific training. I am currently working on an updated and expanded version of the book to be published in the spring of 2015.
I became a Christian at the age of 25 years old. I decided that life by itself was not going to fulfill or satisfy. There had to be more. I found what I was looking for in Jesus Christ. Since that day my life has meaning and hope.
