ABOUT THE AUTHOR
I grew up near Modesto, CA, & graduated from Ceres High School. During my studies at Modesto Junior College I developed an interest in psychology while working in a locked mental facility. In 1988 I began a 20 year career in the Army Reserves where I served as an Armorer, Drill Sergeant, & Combat Medic Instructor.
After earning my AA, I went to Sonoma State University where I earned my BA in Psychology with distinction, & did Post-Graduate work in Neurobiology. Part of my post graduate work was at the San Francisco VA Medical Center where in a schizophrenia research lab.
Following graduate work, I worked as an Obstetrics Technician at a local hospital.
Today I live near Modesto, CA with my 2 sons, & daughter. In my spare time, I'm a docent at Columbia State Historic Park in the Sierra foothills.
