About The Author

        After the required 5 years in Canada, I decided that I liked the country, it's culture and people and became a citizen. In the past 50 years I made up for the education I missed in my youth. I went 6 years to night school. I took grades 9 & 10, blueprint reading, public speaking, electronics, computer software and programming. I now have 4 trades. After writing some short stories (speeches while taking a public speaking course), of my adventures in my youth I was encouraged by many people to turn all my stories into a book, which I did.

        I am now retired and I have one hobby (wood carving) and one passion (singing). My next venture is breaking into the book writing and the publishing world. I no longer spend my winters in Arizona along the banks of the Colorado River, writing books helping people with wood carving, and basic computers problems.

    The additional Health Insurance needed was getting to be more than my monthly pension. My time now is spent in British Columbia (Summer and Winter),  singing with the Male Choir Lyra,  and I also still sing Karaoke.

Do to my wife's illness I am doing very little of my usual past times now.

I hope you will enjoy your visit with me. The German Cowboy
