Notes from the seller: I have enjoyed writing most of my life, beginning with my elementary school days. I continued writing throughout high school and college. I am a college graduate with a BA degree in History and a BS in Sociology, awarded from Lamar University in 1977 and '78. I planned to enroll in law school after graduation. I am also a retired journeyman electrician with more than 35 years working in the trade. I worked my way through college as an apprentice and later as a journeyman electrician. Several years later, my wife and I owned and operated a trucking company for more than ten years. My time in the trade and in our trucking business was spent traveling the eastern half of the country. I gained a wealth of experiences and knowledge while working throughout several diverse regions of the United States. My construction career was primarily responsible for this unique "education." If you work on the long-term projects as I did, you become part of the local area where that "big job" was located. When you return home, you take "a little bit" of that area home with you. And, that unique experience has fed this writer's creative mind. Randy Daniel
