D. Allen Rutherford
I’m 56 years old and semi-retired. I served 12 years as an Officer in the US Army (Infantry & Military Intelligence) before I got out of the service after serving 13+ months in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, & Iraq during the 1990/91 Gulf War. Subsequently, I returned to the Middle East to pursue a career as an international consultant facilitating technology transfer and industrial development projects (lived and worked out of the Middle East for 6+ years). After returning to the states I obtained my Masters Degree and taught college as an adjunct professor. Eventually, I decided to teach secondary education where I taught 8th grade science for several years before deciding to semi-retire from the bump & grind to pursue a life as a speculative fiction writer.
