The Author

John West grew up in Santa Monica, California. He graduated from California State University in Long Beach, California, with a major in biology, a major in physical education, a minor in physical science, and a lifetime standard-teaching credential. He taught science for thirty-three years and retired in 2001. Keeping current in biology and advances in science has enabled John to give a semi-scientific bent to his humor. He has also written a child’s book titled “Being Three” and recorded a CD of original cowboy poetry.

John lives six months on Bainbridge Island, Washington, and six months in Scottsdale, Arizona. He is married to Valerie with a blended family of 4 children and 9 grandchildren. When not writing he enjoys playing golf, chainsaw carving, and cowboy fast draw competitions.  To see the CD on cowboy poetry and a video on cowboy fast draw check out
