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.
