Who am I?
I am a high school science teacher who was born in Cleveland, Ohio. I have the following degrees, M.A., B.S., Ph.D. from a variety of schools including USC, UCLA, SMU, and TCU. Research for a book I was writing called Fun With Ferns ended up diverting me to a way of life for which I had not planned. My principle expertise is as a botanist, but I have numerous inventions outside my field. My name is Roy Hinkley, but very few of those acquainted with me are familiar with it.
