Artist, Educator, and currently an adjunct professor working with student teachers at a Pittsburgh area University. Enjoyed 30+ years teaching teaching Art in the Pittsburgh Public Schools system. A Father, grandfather, coach, and hopefully, a friend to many. A passion to write, and, maybe, write well, remained a persistent "itch" throughout my lifetime.
I began this book eight years ago. I sensed that the story line had some merit, but in reality, the writing was awful. During the spring of 2015 I returned to the manuscript. Energy flowing, I began to write two to three pages a day. It became a demanding and difficult challenge. After 5 months I began to feel satisfied with my efforts. Almost daily, I would read and re-read, tweaking and detailing. Finally, comfortable, I began the process of publishing. I hope that you are entertained by my efforts.
