Howard Schneider is a retired scientist who, upon retirement, began writing an old-time radio serial-style adventure about a scientist, Max Manus, and his wife Lena, an ex-CIA assassin. Evil powers seek the secret for attaining Superman-like power that Max discovered; Lena must help protect him and his secret from unrelenting attacks by those evildoers. Howard then added flash and other short stories to his writing efforts. Many of his stories are included in books published by SpearPoint Publications (Snapshots: Flash Stories From Random Lives; Monkey Casserole; Word Storms; Against All Evil; Survival). SpearPoint was co-founded by Howard and Mizeta Moon.
