The author, Freddy P., was born in Miami, Florida, moved to Santa Barbara, California at age 12, attended local schools-grew up here. A graduate of Fresno State University and University of California Santa Barbara. I’ve worked as a Fireman, college teacher of Industrial Technology, Space Shuttle Engineer, High School teacher of Industrial Technology, worldwide life member of Who’s Who, currently retired and I am a writer. I reside in Goleta, CA.
I have spent 20 years writing this book – not by avoiding life’s pains, searching, experiencing happiness and loneliness, success and failure; finally moving toward Acceptance and Possibilities. During this mid life time I have lived through divorce, single parenthood, a dream aerospace career gone in the winds of change, a return to teaching high school for 16 years and finally retirement, recession and what I consider the real challenge of the rest of my life. What I have learned is to follow my own compass and take charge of my life. Let’s see where I go next. Questions or comments, email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
