I'm an author using the pen name Gardner Brooks. I've been around publishing and writing for decades, but my own novels have just recently been published, so naturally I'm excited about that.
I've retired from my day job, married and live in California (along with roughly 40 million other poor souls). We have a brace of kids and grandkids spread all over the country.
I have an airline electronics background and have had avocations of publishing, painting, singing and writing and pursue hobbies of astronomy and flight simulation. Oh, yeah, I spend a lot of time with computers and fixing whatever computer problem is currently bugging my wife, who is also an author.
