After WWII, my parents settled in Southern California. Born in 1960 I went to the local Catholic Elementary School, then to a Catholic 'College Prep' high school (which means there was NO woodshop class). Having started playing low brass in 3rd grade, I earned a scholarship to the University, but Anthropology captured me. I helped H'mong villagers from Vietnam assimilate (and was exposed to leperosy in the process). Also I spent many afternoons at the Veterans Admin Hospital gathering stories and world-views from veterans from several wars. I love history and mysteries.
