P. G. Smith is a retired college professor who taught philosophy and jurisprudence for 26 years. She published five books and numerous journal articles all best sellers with the 247 other people in her field. She has always been fascinated by what people believe and why they believe it. Given how depressing that hobby has become in recent years, she also goes jogging and practices yoga a lot. After residing in Detroit, Florida, Arizona, Kentucky, Ohio, and New York City she retired to the shores of the Ohio River in Indiana not far from most of her children but not too close either.
