Neil M. Goldman spent fifteen years in a corporate cubicle as a programmer and IT director, and after fifteen years of mind-numbing, cubicle-enclosed meaninglessness, he deciced to make a change for the better.
So, it was back to graduate school to become a high school teacher.
And, every day, he's glad he did, for being a teacher enables him to make a real difference in the minds and lives of our young people.
His first book, Never Too Old To Teach (available on Amazon), chronicled that unforgettable first year as a teacher and the joys and setbacks that accompany the job.
He wrote Electric Dawn because he wanted to explore an idea that was in his mind for many years: What would happen if an ordinary person made a thrilling discovery that would change the way that the world generates electric power? Would the discoverer be embraced by the world, or destroyed by the people whose marble-floored livelihoods were threatened by the discovery?
Originally from Philadelphia, he now lives in the suburbs of Chicago, where he continues to improve the web site he created: Rewordify.com.Electric Dawn is available now:
