Allen R. Remaley has several hobbies among which are playing pickle ball, picking out a few tunes on his banjo and scribbling down his thoughts from time to time. This latter activity has produced seven books and numerous professional articles which dealt with his life, imagination and foreign language teaching career. Although not a ‘real author’, the enjoyment of putting pen on paper has allowed him to leave a record of one who would have loved to have attained loftier levels of literary recognition. He is a former United States Marine, holds a doctorate in French, and loves the Stars and Stripes he proudly served. He shares his hobbies with his wife of many years and he lives in Saratoga Springs, NY and Scottsdale, AZ.
