Curt grew up in a small town in Pennsylvania, where he acquired most of his beliefs as a Cub Scout, Boy Scout, and a Church Youth Group Leader. He enlisted in the Marine Corps after graduating from high school during the Vietnam conflict. During his three-year enlistment, he earned two meritorious promotions, traversed most of Southeast Asia and lost most of those beliefs.
He went to college to understand what happened to America and graduated summa cum laude from Moravian University, majoring in English and History. He had several poems and short stories published before he undertook a professional career that took him around the world as a management consultant. He published numerous articles in leading law journals such as The American Lawyer and the New York Law Journal.
Curt retired in 2017 to pursue his interests in religion, philosophy, and modern history. His debut novel, The Errors of Mankind subtitled Mistaking the True Conditions for Our Well-Being, is an anti-war novel covering both World War II and Vietnam. It is not a war story, nor does it attempt to redeem either side in either conflict. It focuses on the key moral issues involved in each war’s inception, prosecution, and aftermath; it also deals with the existential issues each character in the book must face as they make their pilgrimage through life.
Curt’s book is available on Amazon.
