Born Lakeland, FL, in 1938, lived in Florida until 1967, tho I travelled over much of the world at the time, staying only in Tegucigalpa and Catacamas, Honduras, for any length of time. Was in the early "Orchid Wars", but more as an observer. Moved to San Francisco in 1967 to work for a major orchid grower and became involved in music. Travelled for four years with various bands as writer/arranger and sometimes performer and guitarist (never liked performing) over much of Europe, Australia, etc. Returned to Pasco County, FL, where I worked as everything from a bar owner to a junkyard manager while doing research with orchids (#%^#$%!! things are addictive!). Kept my hand in the music business in a lackadaisical way. Wrote a few books, starting in 1894. Moved to Bonita Springs in 1989 and am still here. I've written more than 100 books.
