American astrologer and writer, a student with Marcia Moore in 1971. His books include "The Nadi System of Rectification" and "2001:The Penfield Collection." Though he is an enthusiastic collector, his data is often subject to misquotes. When he moved into the field of Location Data, he found his niche, giving rein to his extensive interest and knowledge in history and geography.

Penfield had a bout with pneumonia in May 1990 and recovered in Hawaii. Relocating in Hollywood, California, from 1991 he worked full time in astrology, also working the phone lines to counsel people who called for pro psychic and astrological advice.

On 30 July 2004 at 8:08 AM while he was having his morning tea at a North Hollywood restaurant, a truck careened through the window of the café. Penfield dived for the floor when he realized what was happening but was badly hurt. He was rushed to the hospital where they removed his spleen and half of his pancreas. His blood pressure was down to 20/40 but he lived through, having been nearly cut in two.
