About Herb

Both of Herb's parents were story tellers, so it was only natural that he became a story teller. Whether he was leading a Bible Class, teaching a continuing eduction class to engineers or architects, or discussing where to go kayaking, every conversation was punctuated with a story or two. When he retired from the corporate world, he had 44 writing projects lined up. While everyone thinks their project is the most important, Herb is trying to prioritize based on some rationale that even he probably does not understand. When not writing, he is consulting, leading kayakers on nature kayak cruises, or volunteering at his church.
