I am a man, a husband, a father, and a grandfather. I am a retired neurologist with interest in behavior, a relatively new rancher, and a humanist. I retired from medicine and live at Medicine Spirit Ranch, our cattle ranch near Fredericksburg, Texas. Trudy, my wife of almost 44 years, and I enjoy our quaint German community. I love Border collies with rarely a day passing when I don’t stand in awe of their intelligence and athleticism. We travel, golf, and volunteer in our community.
We have lived, worked, and studied in Minneapolis, London, Moscow, as well as multiple locations throughout Texas. These experiences, no doubt, influence my descriptions and beliefs.
Much of my earlier works were scientific, medical, and advice for persons suffering from or caring for those with neurological disorders. Now I aspire to write for popular audiences, especially describing the wisdom expressed in patient stories, the wonder of Border collies, and the enjoyment of retired life in the Texas Hill Country.
Recently, our barns were featured on the Ride Television Network show “Wild About Barns.” I think Trudy and I look pretty good!
