About the Author:

I was born in East Texas a long time ago, and grew up with a sister and a brother. Upon completing high school, I joined the U.S. Air Force and served as a jungle survival instructor in Panama. Following my military service, I enrolled in Stephen F. Austin State University and got married. After getting my degree in biology and chemistry, we moved to Houston where our only child, a son, was born a year later. I worked fifteen years as a chemist, then started my own company. I have been a member of Sugar Land Baptist Church for over 20 years, and have led Bible study classes throughout that time. Many of my best friends are in Bible study together. My wife of 53 years died of cancer in 2014 leaving me the patriarch of a small family--a son, a daughter-in-law, and three grandchildren. In 2018, a new family member was born, a great granddaughter. My family is my pride and joy. I wrote technical articles and reports during my career, but no fiction until recently. Upon retirement, I began to study fiction writing, especially concentrating on science fiction, the genre I love.

THE DAR LUMBRE CHRONICLESIn 2086, NatGov was poised to arrest Dr. Dar Lumbre for performing genetic experiments banned by law, but before the warrant could be served, a solar flare erased large amounts of national census data. During the chaos created by this massive data loss, Dr. Lumbre vanished like a will-o'-the-wisp and hasn't been seen in fifty years.
