I made a trip to China in August 1999 and found my book being sold there. (For more information follow this link.)
I write fiction. I don't sell any which is why I primarily write non-fiction. But if you want you can read some of my short stories.
On weekends I work as a real engineer on the Poway-Midland Railroad. It's a small tourist railroad that runs on the weekends. Located in Poway California, we run a small Steam Train or an Old L.A. Trolley around a 1/3 track loop. If you're in the San Diego area, contact me E-Mail oualline (at) www.oualline.com and I'll try to arrange a time to show you around.
Incidentally, I you know anything about 42" gage railroad equipment for sale or trade contact me E-Mail oualline (at) www.oualline.com
Staying at one of the "rustic" hotels run by Xanterra in our national parks can be more of an adventure than you might intend. Here's a list of questions you should ask before taking your next trip.
