Hello! I am a retired Secondary Science teacher, currently working part-time at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, still following my love of science education. I began my life as an author after retirement as a way to express myself in new and challenging ways. The result was beyond my wildest dreams. The Brin Archives is my scifi trilogy about time-travel, genetics, alien encounters, and the efforts of a small group of individuals to save the galaxy. Aeon Rises is my exploration into young adult scifi with the teenage hero facing an invasion of evil alien librarians. To my surprise, and great honor, my books have earned critical acclaim through a number of awards for their quality writing and story telling. Most recently, I received the 2021 Book Excellence Finalist Award for Aeon Rises. When I am not working or writing, I spend my time spoinling my five grandchildren rotten. After all, that is the job description of a grandpa, right?
