Paul A.Hansen, Ph.D. From the time Paul first frustrated his parents and teachers by drawing airplanes all over his school books, flying has been a passion, culminating in the building of his own plane (1995-97), a GlaStar (above) which he still flies. He took his first flying lesson in a Piper J-3 Cub in 1959. See pictures and more details on pages in his website (http: //paulhansenauthor.com, under "Flying." Paul intends for his novels to not only entertain but inspire his readers. A 45 year career as psychotherapist, management consultant, and minister allowed him to hone his writing while crafting articles in professional journals, training manuals, and sermons. A diverse set of hobbies: flying, fly fishing, camping, and photography help him stay grounded. Adventures in the jungles of Ecuador, the pampas of Chile, the cities and countries of Europe, and flights in his plane around the US provide a rich milieu for his stories. He designed and built the passive solar home he and his wife occupy in Colorado. A non-fiction book stems from his earlier psychotherapist career: SURVIVORS AND PARTNERS, Healing the Relationships of Sexual Abuse Survivors(1991), though still in print, is now available worldwide as an e-book for only $2.99.
