About the Author
Rolland "Moose" Amos, the author, was born in 1931 and grew up in northeastern Ohio. He attended Ohio State U., Mexico City College (B.A. - Int. Rel.), Boston U. (M.A. - Int. Rel.), U. of MD (B.A. - German) and Middlebury (VT) College (M.A. - Russian). Amos served in the army and air force for 22 years, then worked at the National Security Agency until 1994 when he retired. While growing up in Ohio his friends and family called him "Mickey", or "Mick".
In the military people addressed him as "Hey, You!", "A-Mos", "A-Moose", then finally just "Moose" - which stuck. When he wrote his first poem in 2013 ("Ditty to AHS"), he discovered, that writing poems was a challenging, entertaining, rewarding vehicle for expressing thoughts and ideas and for just killing time constructively. He now resides in Maryland.
