Bio

DOB: Oct 4, 1952

I was born in New York and spent my formative years in Massapequa, an unincorporated village on the south shore of Long Island (also the home of Jerry Seinfeld, the Baldwin brothers, and, yes, Joey Buttafuoco.) I was graduated from Princeton University in 1974 with a bachelor's degree in Chemical Engineering, which basically meant many sleepless nights in the
library.

After getting out of school, I moved to Houston, where I began working for a large corporation...the one with the "XX" in its name. Met and fell in love with a Texan...from Fort Worth, no less. Donna and I married in 1977, then moved to New Jersey in 1979, where our first child, Melissa, was born later that same year.

We migrated to Atlanta in 1981 and were blessed with another daughter, Jocelyn, the following year. After five years in the Heart of the Deep South, we moved to Glastonbury, CT...and two years later, to Trumbull, CT. In early 1991, we moved yet again, this time back to Houston. In July 1998 we left Houston to return to Atlanta. If a rolling stone gathers no moss, then our
family is definitely "moss-less."

I'm currently functioning as an account representative: a glorified salesman, selling 250 million pounds of polyethylene and polypropylene plastic a year.  Donna teaches kids with learning differences (e.g., dyslexia). Melissa is a student at Boston University, and Jocelyn is starting her junior year in high school as of this writing.

I'm a voracious reader. In addition to a big chunk of the Orson Scott Card oeuvre, I like other SF writers: Octavia Butler, Isaac Asimov, Arthur C. Clark, Philip K. Dick, David Brin, Gregory Benford, Greg Bear, Cyril Kornbluth, Fred Pohl, Larry Niven, Harlan Ellison, just to name a few. Oh yeah, and mainstreamers like Tom Clancy, Scott Turow...Shakespeare, Huxley,
the list goes on forever. And I'm a big fan of humorous poetry: Ogden Nash, Franklin Adams, Hilaire Bellocq, Morris Bishop, don marquis, lots more. I'm on my second book of the week now...

As for my screen name, no, it has nought to do with Harlan E. My dad's name is Eli, and I'm the elder of two sons. So: Eli's Son 1 - Elisson1. Hoo-hah.
