About the Author:

Leif Bilen grew up in Sweden, only a few miles from the original Volvo factory. After completing his studies at the University of Gothenburg, he taught Swedish and English in the public school system. After moving to the U.S. in 1974 with his American-born wife, Bonnie, he soon went to work for the Volvo Car Corporation. Leif held a variety of positions at Volvo, and at the time of his retirement, he was a vice president in charge of the Central Region. Since his retirement, Leif and Bonnie have traveled frequently to Russia and Ukraine as volunteers with the International School Project working with teachers in the former Soviet Union. Since 2006, Leif has been writing a monthly column for the local paper. Leif and Bonnie live in Longmont, Colorado. They have 3 married children and 4 grandchildren.
