About the author:
As a writer, I beckon readers to go on a voyage. Along the way, science, nature and a culture of peace are usually encountered whether smooth sailing or on rocky shoals. I share with readers in the Epicurean delight of the search for causation.
From books like LYME DISEASE to Op-Ed essays like AN OWL FOR THE KILLING or to children's plays like THE STOLEN BOY, I write to entertain and meaningfully engage the reader.
MOON SHADOW OF WAR is a memoir of my experiences on the home front during the U.S. War in Vietnam. More educators were fired during the late 1960s and early 1970s than during the depths of the Cold War in the 1950s. I was one of them. I was also National Educator of the Year 2009.
I share a love of natural history with my wife Christine. Recreation most often consists of bounding over hill and dale with our dog Mona.
Moon Shadow Of War
There were many casualties of the U.S. War in Vietnam. Like a moon shadow on a deep snow piercing a clear, winter night, the U.S. War in Vietnam cast a shroud over my teaching career and my life. There were more educators fired during the late 1960s and early 1970s than during the depths of the cold war. I was one of them.
The U.S. War in Vietnam loomed over my life. A high school classmate was killed there. As a young teacher, my opposition to the war ranged from a peace poster in my eighth grade science classroom to a huge, black Z taped to the trunk of my car. I fought the military draft while finding my own purpose in life.
In this engaging memoir, the reader learns how it all happened through the eyes of one young teacher who learned to thrive while in the Moon Shadow of War.
