A Few Images of Walter
Walter, 2004. Taken a few months after the completion of Sweet Lil'one, Walter's first tentative foray into the realm of general/literary fiction. He is hard at work on his sixth novel manuscript, returning to science fiction once more with What Do the Curves of Ampersand Mean? He hopes to have "Curves" completed by the first quarter of 2006.
This is Walter at 23. This picture, which appears on the backs of Inheritance of Vigilance and Independence Day Testimony, was taken a short time after the completion of one and before the beginning of the other. In fact, much of the preliminary research and character development for Independence Day Testimony was complete before Inheritance of Vigilance was complete.
This is Walter at 35! This photo appears on the back of Fire By Trial and is actually from a year or two after its completion. He chose it for its "moody and atmospheric" appearance.
Walter "playing" tennis! A rare sight these days. He began playing tennis at 12 as part of the National Junior Tennis League (NJTL) program, and has, until recently, played in various tournaments in and around Philadelphia.
USTA MIDDLE STATES
Walter's interest in environmental issues began in earnest in the 5th grade in 1974-75 and has continued through to this day. As part of an environmental program in middle school, he was introduced to the environmental issues of those days. The EPA was very young at that time and environmental awareness was definitely on the rise. Walter has been employed in the environmental field for the past 15 years and has many stories to tell on what goes right in controlling environmental problems and what still needs to be done in order to improve environmental conditions and increase public awareness.
