Author bio

Author and a retired computer systems and software developer. I reside with my wife of 50+ years in Southwest Florida. I've self-published a novella titled The Implant which is available on Amazon. Some of my other stories can be found at Blurb for The Implant: Melinda Matthews, a freelance journalist, learns from a pharmaceutical company employee that a medical implant capsule designed and marketed by the company has features that violates a person’s right to privacy. The whistleblower tells her that the device can not only track the implantee but can also subliminally plant messages in their brains to influence their buying and political decisions. Melinda becomes an advocate for digital privacy rights, but faced with political opposition and a complacent public, will she and her followers be able to stop the spread of the device?
