Backer Update


This last month my attention has been diverted away from working on my book "Mold Controlled" by another important project. I have been asked to write a chapter about mold, investigations and remediation for a different book. I can't tell you all about that project yet, but I can tell you that its author is a highly qualified physician that is focusing his attention on providing important information about exposure and treatment for people that have been sensitized by their living environment. I will be telling you more about that book before it is released.

The following Mold Controlled chapters are currently posted in the Contributor Login Section of my author website at
