Thomas Fiske is a former executive of manufacturing companies who retired to do those things he liked best—to write and snooze. When he found he was a failure at one of these tasks he filled in part of his time by substitute teaching at a nearby middle school. He is a graduate of Case in Cleveland with an MBA. These days he is a second class, second tenor in a local choir in Fullerton, California. Late in his life Tom has returned to his Ham radio interests and has become AA6TF.
