Profile Information


                Kenneth Anderson, Bio


                                                            By  Ken the Carpenter.



Kenneth Earl Anderson was born March 6, 1941 in San Diego, Calif.    I was raised in a very religious atmosphere, Church, parochial school.   I enlisted in the US Army 1958 and served two years overseas, after completing my enlistment was honorably discharged from 3 years active duty in 1961.    I have been a Carpenter, contractor and builder for forty + years.  As a carpenter I have done everything from home building as a carpenter as well as the contractor in WI., ILL., CO., CA. I have worked as carpenter in the high-rises in Chicago to the head layout carpenter on the 54 story energy center in Denver CO. then in charge of all the personal, layout and interior build out of the 56 story United Bank building also in Denver then in California as a superintendent I was in charge of all the commercial construction of one of the largest builders in San Diego, from the Mexican border to north of Los Angles as well as many others.      

I also have gone through many years of religious and theological study and have earned and received a Doctorate in Bible studies, a Doctor of Divinity and am an ordained Minister.

Although it may sound, as religion is the center of my life, the truth is I am very anti-religion as the doctrines that are insisted on are all dictated by individuals. 

I do very much believe that there is an all encompassing Creative Power that all things are a part of.

As you will see in my stories the Infinite part of us is, I believe, capable of anything and we all have made the choices and are standing on the spot we designated whether we believe that or disagree.  That is the only point we can move from and in the direction we choose. 

I have given lectures on subjects that have ranged from child upbringing to my personal beliefs on what God is and who we may be.

I have been very happily married for 43 years, and have three daughters, fourteen grandchildren and seven great grandchildren.  

Currently I live in the Solders Grove, Wisconsin  

I have been around for 67 years  and have experienced a wonderful life although finances have fluctuated from the bottom to very comfortable I have gone though health issues from heart attack to cancer as well as other geezer ailments but am still young at heart and well.   I now am retired, only from going to another’s job  

Although the majority of my studies have been on the Spiritual side, my conclusions I feel will truly generate the mind of all to perhaps at least consider their abstract merit.

I have several others started.  All stretch the imagination and drift from as you will see the physical to the nonphysical.   One I am working on now is titled the Messiah and am at around 100,000+ words.

Some of the titles I chose are on many books in one way or another, but I feel none have the content from the abstract point of view or story line that I have portrayed. 

Many people have read my stories on the manuscript level as well as the printed one and of all ages from teens to the upper eighty’s and all have encouraged me to get them all published.

          I hope you find the short stories enjoyable I have a lot of other stories.       

Looking forward to your reply

I call most of what I write, Philosophical Fiction
