About the Author

Bill McDonald is a retired Engineer/Scientist after working nearly fifty years in America’s space and national defense programs. He was born in Coffeeville, Mississippi and raised by his grandparents on a farm nearby after his mother left him and his father was killed in action during World War II. During his career as an engineer, he sometimes wrote poetry capturing his feelings and emotions about important events, activities, and circumstances of his life. Walking on a Moonbeam captures those poems in a single coherent Volume.


Bill lives in Madison, AL. Since his retirement Bill spends most of his time with family and friends. He is still an avid reader and continues to write when the moments arise.
