George, thank you for coming by!
We met at IBM, where we both used to work, and we just celebrated our 20th anniversary last July.
Any children, grandchildren, or pets in the family? Who lives at home?
We have 6 children and two grandchildren. Our youngest son still lives at home while he finishes up his Physics degree at college. We also have 3 crazy cats.
Did you know MaryLu was a writer before you were married?
No, I would have never guessed she had a talent for writing. When I met her she was programming computers!
What is your occupation and how long have you been working at that vocation?
I am a Scientist with a PhD in Physical Chemistry and I’ve been working in my field for 31 years.
What are a few of your favorite books and authors? (Not including your wife's.)
James Mitchner Hawaii, James Clavell Shogun, John Grisham. Other favorite authors include Vince Flynn and Ben Coes. I also enjoy Joel Rosenberg, Brad Thor, and Daniel Silva. As you can tell, I mostly enjoy military spy thrillers.
No. I decided early on that I’d better not read her work because I’m a very critical reader and I didn’t want to cause unnecessary problems.
Where does MaryLu write?
In one of our spare bedrooms that is set up like an office.
What does she wear when writing?
Hmm. Usually jeans and a t-shirt or sweat shirt.
Is there anything unusual that she ever asks you to do relating to her writing?
Fill out this interview! But also, I’m a carpenter hobbyist and she asked me to make one of our bedrooms look like a Captain’s cabin aboard a tall ship. I’m working on it and eventually it will become her new writing room.
What activities do the two of you enjoy doing together as a couple?
Movies, vacations, dinner out, and watching our favorite TV shows.
Now, from MaryLu:
Does your husband write? If so, please tells us about it.
No. He used to write scientific papers but he doesn’t do that anymore. Besides, I never understood a word of them!
As an author, what is something exceptional that you appreciate about your husband relating to his support of your career.
As he mentioned above, he’s making me the coolest writing room with oak flooring and wainscoting and an antique book shelf built into the closet and even wooden beams on the ceiling! I’m going for the nautical captain’s cabin look, and I can’t wait to see the finished product.
George has always been supportive of my writing and always asks me how my books are coming along and takes an interest in the process.
Thank you George and MaryLu! It was so nice to have you here at WTD!
