Author Details

About : Bachelor Degree in Psychology from San Francisco State University and a Masters of Social Work at Fresno State University with a psychiatric focus in 1978. I published A Pilot Study of Personality Type Change that was a result of thesis research in 1980. This began my counseling career that led to becoming a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in 1981. This license allowed me to conduct psychiatric therapy and marriage counseling in a private practice setting. I graduated from the Biofeedback Institute of Los Angeles and began treating psychophysiological disorders on both an out and in-patient basis. A transition to medical social work on cardiac and medical-surgical unitsrequired conducted bereavement family counseling. This led to death and dying counseling for a home health care hospice. I credit the hospice experience for enlightening me to the end of life issues. Afterthat, I established a workers compensation private practice treating and advocating for injured employees. I also became an instructor/counselor for a diet clinic advising on mental heath issues and eating. I established the first stress reduction and anxiety management program for the diet center.   Due to broad interests, I began to study business investments and became a registered representative or stockbroker. Combining this withan insurance license allowed me to offer annuities for 401k and 403b tax deferred retirement plans. I then applied stock market knowledge to the real estate markets in four different states as an investor. But, missing the depth of human contact, I returned to counseling. I have been retired from the formal aspect of this work since 2008 after 30 years of practice. I continue to do volunteer counseling and enjoy continual research and study in gerontology and retirement areas. The accumulation of all this diverse experience is evidenced in my current work for women. I was motivated to write Creative Retirement for Women as a solution oriented guide for successful retirement.

About: Steve Catto is an old man, or at least that's what it says on his birth certificate. He was born in Yorkshire, but his parents took him to Australia when he was six years old and he grew up there, sometimes racing cars across the desert.

He was never very good at school, but the one thing he did learn was how to learn, and he started writing programs for the computer at the local university, much to the disdain of his teachers who told him that he would ‘never make a living out of that rubbish'. In his late teens he returned to the UK, and his parents followed him – which wasn't what he wanted because he was hoping to get away from them. His first proper job was in the computer department of an infamous Oxford publishing company, and he subsequently went on to write software for electricity control systems, and simulators for the military. He started to fly gliders and wrote programs to analyse the data from aircraft flight recorders, where he also learned to fly, and crash, lots of other types of aircraft as well – which was the best part of the job. At various times in his career he has also lived and worked in France, Switzerland, and Canada, and he now lives in Scotland. Since appearing in school plays as a child he has performed almost continuously on the amateur stage, and spent a few years scuba diving. These two things have nothing to do with each other. In terms of his pedigree as an author he has written many technical manuals and filled in countless timesheets, so is well versed in the art of conjuring up works of fiction, however he has never written a novel before, especially not one that involves a blonde girl and a man with a bow and arrow, but he did once spend three weeks working in a factory that made handles for buckets.
