Dateline: Deke Solomon
Deacon Solomon grew up on a farm, did 4 years in the Marines, worked as a truck driver, a mechanic, a computer technician. He then went to college and graduate school and put his MA to work as a technical writer in the manufacture of heavy machinery.
Now, forced into retirement by poor health, Deke writes book reviews because he believes that those who know the power of the written word owe the public reports upon what we read and upon such truth(s) as we may discover in reading. Knowledge is sacred.
