Ernest was born in 1946 in New York City, where he grew up. He attended CUNY, first as an architectural student, but graduated as a math major. He was then hired by IBM right out of college. During his thirty-year career at IBM, he spent thirteen years living overseas with his family, both in Europe and Asia. Once retired from IBM, he moved to Silicon Valley and spent the next twenty years working at five different startups. However, the real joy of his life has been his family. His seven daughters, two wives, a mother, a sister, two mothers-in-law, and four granddaughters have given him a deep immersion into womanhood. They, along with the rest of the family, including five wonderful grandsons, have helped provide him with the insight to create a story about a family living through extraordinary times. Hopefully, you will find the experiences of this family exciting and enjoyable.
