In Depth Charges, the author shows us how a deeper, more sensitive approach to life can extract valuable insight from our daily experiences. In a series of thought provoking essays, we accompany Calten on an incisive journey through childhood days, the Vietnam War years, life in corporate America, online dating, the animal world, and place existing only in our mind and spirit.
Scientist, musician, recording artist, environmentalist, lecturer, and incessant observer, Tom Calten began his dance with life in a small Long Island, New York town, just minutes from the ocean. tHat childhood setting provided endless opportunities for exploration and analysis – skills he would use for things to come. After a brief tour in a rock band, Tom earned a degree in Microbiology and began a long career in the pharmaceutical field as a scientist and technical educator. With worldwide speaking engagements and program developments, he still managed to maintain a grip on his creative side. In his first book, Depth Charges, Tom shares an analysis of his diverse life experiences with a characteristic sense of humor. Tom resides in Arizona where he continues to observe, write, and compose. He can be reached at thomascalten.com.
