About the Author:

Writing has been a lifelong passion for Cal Patterson. And during retirement he has found time to write novels, a dream he had nourished for years. Since publication of two earlier novels, both targeted to teens and young adults, he has turned to a different and more challenging project, nothing less than bringing to life stories of individuals he calls The Wayfarers, family members from the past and present, figures drawn from the genealogical record. His career included three years in the United States Air Force, thirty in the telephone industry and ten as executive director of a private foundation. In the Air Force he was a pilot in an air refueling squadron of the Strategic Air Command. During his years in the telephone business he worked for Northwestern Bell in Iowa and Michigan Bell in the Detroit area. One of his assignments with Michigan Bell was oversight of corporate contributions. This led to the opportunity to retire and move to the McGregor Fund, a private foundation in Detroit. He retired from the McGregor Fund at year end, 1994 and has enjoyed time in Florida and Michigan since. Home is now in northern Michigan, "in the woods about a half a mile from Higgins Lake."
