BN Heard is a mathematician who has spent more than 20 years in the aerospace industry.  Imagine a rocket scientist trying to figure out a way to make you smile, laugh, and sometimes roll on the floor. 

He cut the grass at his hometown newspaper in Alabama, played softball with a Pulitzer Prize winning author, and in addition to his mathematics degrees; he has a Minor in English.  He thinks that these things qualify him to write.  The truth is; he tells a good story.

He writes about life in general and the things that “crank his tractor.”  He sometimes travels across the country to find a laugh, then again sometimes he just steps outside his back door.  You can find out more about him at his Cranks My Tractor website, “like him” at his Facebook Fan Page , or follow him on Twitter.
