About the author
Frank Fuerst was born and raised in St. Louis, and he graduated from Washington University in his hometown. He flew for three years in the Air Force, during which time he and his wife, June, had two of their three children. Then he spent a career in marketing and education with IBM. When June was diagnosed with younger-onset Alzheimer's, he took an early retirement and cared for her at home for 17 years until she died. Afterwards, he worked full-time to prevent development of the headwaters of a Potomac River tributary. This prize-winning writer and poet lives in the mid-Atlantic area near three of his five grandchildren, one of whom he home-schooled for two years. In 2013, the White House announced that he was receiving a Gold level President's Volunteer Service Award for his volunteerism.
