I am a retired psychologist and a Professor Emeritus of Education from Penn State. Most of my academic career centered on preparing graduate students to be counseling psychologists, rehabilitation counselors and school counselors. Even though they nominated me for an outstanding teaching award, my students claim that I published and perished with over one hundred published research articles and book chapters on my resume. I can now add two novels to my list including Two Paths Crossing: Then and Now and Stolen Five Times. Historic fiction is my favorite genre and I probably should have been a history teacher.
