Hi there. I teach English, History, and German courses at the secondary and collegiate levels. My home state is Illinois, but I have traveled and lived all over the place. I am a Navy Veteran and was fortunate enough to have been stationed in Scotland for four years in the 80s. Fast forward–I started college late at age 30 and now have a few expensive pieces of paper to show for myself. I’ll be paying back student loans until I’m 63. Ha! How brilliant is that?
I wrote a historical novel set in 1900. It would be great if you decided to buy The Knife with the Ivory Handle on Kindle or Amazon HERE. Meet the characters in “Inside the Gold Plated Pistol” in the tab above. My goal is to write a series of novellas that captures the historical climate of Americans in the 20th century.
Check out the second novel set in 1928 called Inside the Gold-Plated Pistol.
I enjoy sharing my photography when I travel. I annually escort students, adults, and families to Europe and beyond. Jim and I like to explore the Southwest; you will frequently see our hiking/camping trips posted.
Movies have been a part of my entire life. I like to write about films, the stars, and the way directors make movies. If you are willing and able, check-in on the 13th of the month to participate in a discussion about the film industry. Would you like to be a co-host? Wonderful! Let’s talk.
I have many interests but consider watching movies, writing, blogging, reading, photography, and shooting pool favorite ways to occupy my time.

P.S. I use Google images and IMDb for the details about my film posts. The analysis is all me.
