I’m Donald Swan, Author and Admin for this site. When I stop to think about it, I’ve done a lot of things in my life. From building Yachts and houses, to designing and managing retail store chains, to sculpture and painting, to building and owning mall jewelry stores, and of course writing. I’m sure I left a bit out. But anyway, I recently moved to the mountains of NC with my beautiful wife and a feisty schnauzer, and enjoy hiking and the wonderful outdoors.
