About the Author

The author of "Happenings" is a native of Southern California where the primary and early school years were spent. Relocation many years ago to Northern California and subsequently into retirement has given the author many experiences and new views of life which has brought about the desire to share them in written form.

Retirement made it possible to travel for the purpose of visiting old and new places, renewing friendships and seeing sights not before visited. These travels have been a primary recreation over the past years. And of course writing also being an ongoing recreation in conjunction with travel has given this writer the opportunity to have some creative moments along the way.
Family and friends have also been a major interest in life and have been a blessing in so many ways. Children and grandchildren now occupy time in my schedule of activities. Seeing them grow and mature into good people is in and of itself a real pleasure.
My goal in writing this fictional novel is to share with others some of the experiences I've had in life and hopefully to inspire, to entertain and possibly even to educate in some ways those who will take the time to read this book.
