When men stood and gave a woman their seat and a time when a movie could be seen for a dime. An age when soda fountains made ice cream creations and each neighborhood had one, and when phones had ''party'' lines that were shared by multiple families, In a golden time when everything came in glass bottles and people were happy with black and white television and only three channels. it was an age when children could truly be children and purchase toys like BB guns and bows and arrows and where every boy had a pocket knife to peel an apple. A time when girls had miniature electric sewing machines, dinner sets with real knives and forks, and electric ovens. Where instead having to learn martial arts for self defense, he shows them a time when man would never lay a hand on woman, and no such situation wou. Buchnummer des Verkäufers

Über den Autor: EdwinBecker.com Edwin F. Becker is 68 and became a bestselling author with the release of his book True Haunting in 2011. TrueHaunting.com He has appeared on SYFY's Paranormal Witness in the record breaking season two finale, "The Tenants." He has also acted as guest and co-host on numerous commercial and internet radio shows in the U.S., Canada, United Kingdom and Australia. He was born in Chicago, Illinois, a Baby Boomer. Coming from an abusive broken home, he spent a number of elementary years in Maryville, a Catholic children's institution. There, he learned Latin and became an altar boy. He went on to become a professional musician and spent his later teen years traveling the states with an R&B Show band. During his travels, he met and married his wife of 47 years. Entering college, he studied the emerging field of computers and eventually progressed to VP of MIS for a major health care corporation. He became president of a software company that catered to the sales and development of health care inventory management. Suffering a near fatal heart attack, he retired to the Ozarks where he opened a collectible store for a number of years. He has been writing original stories for over three decades for pure enjoyment. He has two daughters that have given him four granddaughters. His youngest daughter is involved with fostering abused children, and rescuing animals, including horses. He has a son-in-law involved in law enforcement. His life experience and interests run the gamut as he has enjoyed boating, martial arts, ballistics, comics, guitars, motorcycles, religion, and the paranormal, to name a few personal interests. Today he resides in Branson, where he enjoys the year around activity and entertainment. He is very opinionated and many of his works contain a strong social subtext. Missouri, the "Show Me" state, seems an appropriate place to reside. His personal philosophy? "Leave everything and everyone better than you found them."
