I am currently Professor Emeritus at Central Arizona College. I taught there and at several other colleges and universities after receiving his PhD from the University of Arizona. My writing career started with numerous non-fiction publications in the education field and has since branched out to the fiction genre. My most recent publication is a literary novel entitled The Brothers' Keepers. Upcoming publications include a novella entitled The Neighborhood and a photo narrative of my travel experiences in China, which I have entitled An American Academic in Li Bai's Court: China Photos and Reflections.
