  About the author  

George J. Beimers, B.S. MEd, was born in Grand Rapids, Michigan. He did his undergraduate work at Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo. His graduate work was interrupted during the Korean War when he was drafted and served in the army. Afterwards he completed his graduate work at Columbia University and University of Arizona. George was awarded National Science Foundation grants to further his studies of International Relations with John Hopkins University. This included studying abroad at Bologna University in Bologna, Italy. It was with Claremont College, Pomona, California that he furthered his research in the area of psychology and sociology.

In 1969 he was part of a team from the University of Washington touring 10,000 miles from one end to the other Russia examining economic and agricultural conditions along with their communist controlled school systems.

After twenty-five years of lecturing and researching in various areas of political science, psychology and sociology, George turned to writing.

Research for books he wrote or helped publish have taken George to Europe, as well as Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan, and Japan. Besides writing prose, George is also an award-winning poet. He is a charter member of the International Society of Poets and won awards for his poetry in 1987-88 and 1991.

This well traveled writer is married and currently living in Port Aransas, Texas with his Malaysian Chinese wife Gertrude. They cruised their 39' cutter Rose Of Jericho for 9 1/2 years along the west coast and finally landed it in Corpus Christi Bay.
