This is my very first try at blogging, and it probably shows. I hope to be able to make more favorable and intimate connections in this kind of format.
I have over 35 years experience in proofreading and editing and I hope to be able to make a little money at it after I retire in July. (Five months can be a very long time!)
I have been married to my wife, MaryJane, for 30 years and we have two grandsons, and a daughter-in-law. Our son took his own life this past June. One never gets over that. They are currently living in Bothell, Washington.
I have been involved in teaching, acting, theatre directing, writing and playwrighting. I was a pastor in a very small church in south-central Idaho for 13 very long months.
We now live in Vallejo, California – east of the San Francisco Bay area, and about a mile to “the Gateway to Napa wine country.
