William Burns was born circa the early fifties on the trailing edge of the beautiful generation (remember the Hippies?) and raised in and around the rolling hills and glens of West Virginia. He holds lots of degrees (mostly Celsius, some Fahrenheit some Kelvin) in areas such as electrical engineering, biomedical engineering and technical education. He keeps the hounds of starvation at bay by teaching electrical engineering and electrical technology courses for various colleges. He has written seven plays that have made the stage and been published in over 100 hardcopy magazines, as well as a metric bunch of web page zines. Bill lives in South Carolina with his bride of thirty nine years and their three children.
