About the Author

Having semi-retired, I now have more time to reflect on my many blessings. Topping the list are my wonderful family and dozens of close friends around the world. I am so proud to have 8 marvelous grand-children and two great grandchildren. 

I write rhyming books for children about Fred the friendly Snake, which my children, when young, called “Fred-Fred” (for reasons that will be obvious when you read the first book). They have awesome illustrations by Bonnie Lemaire, and have own several prizes. The first book is called “When Fred the snake got squished and mended”, followed by “When Fred the Snake goes to School”, and then “When Jungle Jim and friends come to visit Fred the Snake”. Most recently we have released “When Fred the Snake and Friends explore Charleston”, where I live, and a small coloring book.

I am extremely fortunate also to have had a stimulating and rewarding professional life, which has allowed me to travel widely and to associate with many extraordinary people in many countries. I have recounted some of these adventures in my recently published “memoirs”, called “The tunnel at the end of the light; my endoscopic journey in six decades”.
