Inhaltsangabe: Makers of Mischief is a humorous, heartwarming, and emotionally engaging look back at childhood experienced by many baby boomers. The true stories delight in the mischievousness and imaginations of pre-teen brothers, and their neighborhood pals, girls included. Their (sometimes perilous) adventures entertain, uplift, and inspire. They always found ways to avoid the monsters under their beds. Lessons learned enabled them to grow up, overcome their poverty, and catch their dreams. They return to their boyhood locale five decades later and discover those young boys still live in their memories and in their hearts. The book can be read and enjoyed by readers of all ages, including children. Makers of Mischief also is a nostalgic look back at America during the decade of the 1950s. It was a more innocent life, in a simpler time. Additionally, included with each book is a set of four full-color detachable Dream Cards to assist the reader in catching their own dreams.

After service, he moved to California and put himself through college the first of his ancestry to do so by working nights, graduating in Mathematics and Physics from San Jose State University. He then lived in and around the San Francisco Bay Area and fashioned a thirty year career in Silicon Valley s high-tech industries. He is a successful engineer/businessman-entrepreneur having been an executive or founder in six start-up companies. One company he founded, and served as President and Chairman of the Board, became a multinational public company. Mr. Osborne is an avid outdoorsman, sports enthusiast, and sailor, having coastal cruised and sailed over 8,000 miles on the open ocean. He is a devoted (now second) family man, who with his wife is raising her teenage daughter. He stays active in business as an executive management consultant. He is a man of spiritual commitment, and a keen observer of life and people.
