D. Philipp Kaiser (Darrel P. Kaiser) retired some years back after spending his life troubleshooting and repairing electronic and mechanical missile and helicopter components and systems for the US Government for over 43 years.

Darrel has written and published over 35 books in English, German, and other languages, some of them Research & Technical books on German and Russian History, Politics, Religion, and Ancestry; Basic Electrical Troubleshooting; sewing machines; as well as a book about the Watercolor quilts of his late wife, Betty Kaiser.

He has also written and published many historical fictional novels and short stories, along with many books on Christianity, Jesus, and GOD.

Diane, born in Baltimore, Maryland, moved to Florida at 10 so that her father could be part of the new and growing Space Industry. She graduated from the University of South Florida, Tampa, with a degree in English/Journalism Education. After spending five years teaching high school English and supervising production of both the school newspaper and yearbook, Diane moved into the technical world, researching and compiling data for Environmental Impact Statements. Although she has lived in the Huntsville, Alabama, area for over 30 years, her job with a local software development firm there let her travel all over the country to support and train their customers. Diane "speaks the same language" as Darrel because she spent the last several years of her career as a Technical Writer and Editor, creating the Helicopter Technical Manuals he says he always ignored.

Diane's interest in the fine arts has led her to tackle her own art projects. She has a good eye for composition, and captures the world through the eye of her camera, too. Diane is active with her church and the proud mother of her son, Thad Gerrell, a professional chef.

Darrel and Diane are married and living amidst the cotton fields of Madison, Alabama, with their Welsh Cardigan Corgi, Dylan; their Havana Brown cat, Mocha; and the Queen of the house, a Seal Point Siamese, Tiramisu. Working together as co-authors on their writings, they live in peace as one with the blessing of the Eternal Father, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit.

Always ready for a new adventure, Diane is there to support Darrel when he says, "There's a story here!"

Darrel Kaiser is an unassuming sort of guy. His quick smile and jovial nature make him likable, but it is what most people don't know that makes him remarkable. Kaiser is a prolific author.  

Kaiser, a senior system technical representative at the IMMC's Cargo Utility Branch of the Readiness Directorate, has 11 books in print. Five deal with the history and genealogy of the German-Russian people of the Volga Colonies in Europe. In fact, that is where his literary foray began.

"I wanted to know about my heritage and my culture," he said. "I started trying to track down information."

During a two-year assignment in Germany as the AMCOM senior system technical representative for aviation, Kaiser decided to make the most of his proximity to his family's roots. He began traveling to  the small towns and villages that his ancestors once called home.

"The government sent me there as a LAR (logistics assistance representative)," he said. "I was able to go visit the places my ancestors lived 225 years earlier."

Once he had researched his family origins as far back as possible, he began compiling the data. He decided to turn his findings into a book. It would be his first.

"It took about 10 years of research and writing to make it a reality," he said.

After completing his genealogical reference, he took his research further. To date he has published four more works dealing with the history and struggles of the region and its people. He hopes to one day write a novel about it.

"There are so many stories. Each name represents a story and a family," Kaiser said.

Kaiser has four books published dealing with antique sewing machines. Three outline the history and progression of the industry and designs, and the last is an illustrated technical manual.

"I try to write in people language and not technical language," he said. "But I have a technical background. I approach writing in that way."

Kaiser joined the National Guard near his hometown of Fresno, Calif., in 1968, during the Vietnam War. He spent years working on helicopter maintenance full time. After leaving service, he became a member of the civilian work force as a logistics assistance representative for the Missile Command. He traveled the world in support of Army aviation, including two years as the senior instructor for electronics and electrical training at AMCOM's Norbert R. Lutz LAR University in Corpus Christi, Texas.

He said the reason most people are uncomfortable dealing with electronic repair is the highly technical way the field is taught." Instruction usually starts with the idea that everyone is going to be designing circuits," he said. "The vast majority of people aren't going to be designing. They just want to do repairs." To try to translate some of his vast electronic experience into a more practical guide for the average person, Kaiser penned another book: "Basic Electrical Troubleshooting for Everyone." It uses   a common sense approach to tracking down common issues.

"It stands to reason that if you walk in a room and the light is off, you should flip the switch first. If that doesn't work, make sure the power is on. Then you change the light bulb," he said. "Everything can be done in that common sense, scientific method."

Kaiser has been working on Army aircraft and equipment for almost 38 years. While he has enjoyed it,  he knows that one day in the not-too-distant future he will retire. He looks forward to having the free time to do more writing and perhaps finish one of the books he has already started at home.

"I have the beginnings of probably 10 books," he said. "I write when I have a thought. I write until I get that thought or point out. Then I walk away from it. When I have another thought, I go back."
