I write what I know.
I worked many jobs, paying my way through Electrical Engineering. One of those jobs included Civil Engineering tasks. Aa an Electrical Engineer I accomplished a few Mechanical Engineering porjects. In my novel, "Tares among the Wheat," a principal character graduates with a Mechanical Engineering degree in 1915. Not that I am that old, I have strived to always "write what I know." as my teachers and professors advised. This is a photo of me just yesterday, surveying the site on my ranch for a new building.
