I am an author, a Midwest "lake person", and a fan of baseball games at all levels, especially if they last less than three hours. I graduated with a degree in Creative Writing from the University of Minnesota and live in St. Paul with my wife/professor, Dr. Teresa Ripple, and two middle-aged friendly but odd dogs. I have written two books (both yet to be published) and I am beginning to work on my third. I have fished for years at the Canadian lodge that inspired THE CRYING WOLF, and I have spent time in the Iron Range of Minnesota, the setting of DOWN AND AWAY. I have even eaten rutabaga, potato, and beef pasties, and can honestly say I love them.
