Retired in 2009 after 23 years with the Public Affairs Office of the Wisconsin Department of Military Affairs. Spent more than six years as editor of The Congregationalist, quarterly magazine of the Congregational Way. Retired from that retirement job in January 2016 to concentrate on writing. Three short stories e-published by Saturday Evening Post. My historical novel, Freedom's Purchase, is in polished fourth draft and I am shopping it to agents and publishers; second novel, Dizzy on Wry, completed as first draft, seeking feedback from beta readers. Post a blog entry weekly at https://LarryFSommers.com.
I also travel--when not confined by global pandemics--with my wife, Joelle, and spend as much time as possible with our grandchildren, Elsie, age 11, and Tristan, 8. In the present COVID circumstances, we are their "independent study/enrichment
