I held a lot of different positions during my working career. Each was, to some extent, built on the experiences I had in my previous position. Most of the jobs I had were technical. My first job was repairing radios. During college I worked as a machinist. After college I worked as a lab technician, a mechanical designer, and electrical engineer. After my initial exposure to computers I became a programmer. That led to a job in technical support and I ultimately was promoted to Director of Technical Support.
After many years of doing technical support, I accepted a job as Director of Software Development. While I was working in both customer support and software development I was required to write technical manuals and user guides, but I always wanted to write something that people would really want to read.
After I retired I finally had the time to do that. Future World History – Book 1 is my first effort at writing a science fiction novel. This is the first book in a trilogy. Future World History – Book 2 has also been published, and I expect the third book to be available before the end of 2017. I am also writing a series of short story murder mysteries that have a bit of science fiction or fantasy in them. The first six stories have been combined into a novel. The book, Frank Carver Mysteries, is now available on Amazon and other online book stores.
My website ( has excerpts from the first two Future World History books and the entire first short story in the murder mystery book.
I currently live in Rockwood, Tennessee. A small city about 25 miles west of Knoxville. I live here with Sherry, my wife for more than 50 years, and our three poodles.
