Louis Fried spent 20 years as an international consultant and senior manager with Stanford Research Institute. During his years with SRI International, he worked on projects in 30 countries, published two books, and wrote hundreds of articles and papers in information technology and management. Fried, who has lived for years in Palo Alto, CA, was not content to simply retire and travel. He returned to his boyhood love of writing fiction. His stories are given life by detailed memories of working, living, and adventuring in countries from Asia and the Middle East
through Europe, the South Pacific, and America.
His stories have won awards from the Writer’s Digest and the Palo Alto Weekly, and have been published in several magazines. They encapsulate his lively imagination and often illustrate his sense of the ridiculous.
Fried now divides his time between his homes in Palo Alto, CA and Jerusalem, Israel, while he continues to work on his next book.
