Author Bio:
David A. Campbell of Bucks County, Pennsylvania, earned a B.S. degree from Drexel University, majoring in Business and minoring in Psychology while taking writing courses. Though a writer at heart, he heeded Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs, deciding that food and shelter come before self-actualization. Bored with management, he took a job requiring constant travel, then rehabbed 19th century Philadelphia houses for resale before securing his present employment as a locomotive engineer.
