Read an article written about me in the Belleville [IL] News-Democrat
January 9, 2000:
I have been writing for pleasure and publication since the third grade.
I have been a pilot since 1972, earning advanced ratings and licenses, including Flight Instructor. I retired as an air traffic controller after 30 years, eight months, and ten days. (But who's counting?)
I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1995. I am a cancer survivor, a heart attack survivor, and like the Energizer bunny, just keep going and going.
I have been profiled nationally in MS Life, More magazine and other publications, and I have appeared for interviews several times on our local Fox affiliate.
A Cheddarhead and Badger by birth, I now live in the St. Louis area with two adults, three dogs, and a cat.
