I was born on Cape Cod, and that's where I grew up and learned all about sailing. I had a very successful Rock and Roll Band from 1962-1971. I've had several different jobs including ship navigator, programmer and systems analyst, tree surgeon, house painter, and many more. I am currently a book editor and unpublished writer. My favorite book genres are action/adventure, private eye stories, spy novels, WW2, biographies and autobiographies, and mystical/magical books, especially by J.K. Rowling and J.R.R. Tolkien.
