I was a high school science teacher for 23 years and then a College professor for 29 years. I am now officially retired and spend most of my time playing with my antique sewing machines and using them to make quilts. I have been married to Connie for 54 years so I have been active in various ways with the Science Fiction community for many, many years. I have been attending and participating in MileHiCon for over forty years. I always look forward to October.
