About the Author:
I am a 71-year-old retired transgender woman living with my wife of almost 28 years in the mountains of northern New Hampshire.
When I retired, I was working as a Senior Computer Scientist programming, designing systems for the Navy's AEGIS shipboard weapons system. Before that, I was enlisted in the Navy during the Vietnam war as a Cryptologics Technician Interpreter (CTI) specializing in Mandarin Chinese and Arabic Languages. I also hold a second-degree black belt in Okinawa Kenpo Karate and Kobudo (open hand and weaponry) and I teach courses in Women's Self Defense and Assault Prevention. I am a guitarist and singer of 50 years and a semi-professional entertainer.
In 2005 I was bitten by a tick that put me in a coma with Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. As a result of illness, which nearly killed me, I was left with traumatic brain injury and stroke which ended up making me retire at 55. I had to relearn to walk but after a few years was doing fine with a few residual physical limitations.
I have two wonderful children from previous marriages and 4 beautiful grandchildren.
