About the Author:

William Post was reared in the West Texas town of Colorado City. He was educated at Texas A. & M. then served in the United States Navy. After his service he became a land surveyor for the Southern Pacific Railroad. This took him to the wilds of New Mexico, Arizona and California where he immersed himself in the lore of those areas. This becomes apparent throughout the stories in these settings. William has always had a wander lust. At the age of fifteen he traveled by himself to New York City then caught an oil tanker down to South America to visit his aunt, uncle and cousins who lived on the island of Aruba. He has traveled nearly every interstate in America visiting most of the national parks and their mysteries. He has actually lived in seven of the fifty states. William is a professional engineer and holds licenses with the state of California in Land Surveying and Civil Engineering. He retired as the Chief Engineer of the Long Beach Water Department. Taking an early retirement he moved his family to northern California near Nevada City, the heart of gold country. He dredged and sniped for gold in the Merced and Yuba rivers. He has been in the gold mines and explored much of that country. William is an evangelic Christian and this thread is seen throughout the fiber of his stories. He is married to Brigitte Wittstock, a German immigrant, and through visits with her German family was inspired to write three novels with Germany as the central setting. William now lives in Las Vegas, Nevada with his extended family.
