E.A. Cook (Eddy) has lived a life that rivals the characters that he writes about. He was raised in the Northwoods of Minnesota and as a young man he spent years traveling around the U.S. covering 43 states and trips over the borders of Mexico and Canada. He traveled by box car, hitchhiking, and as a carny traveling with 8 different shows off and on over twelve seasons. He’s worked as a hot dog vendor and face painter in New Orleans and has been an Account Executive for print advertising, owned a private investigations company, and is a recently retired cabby and writing full time. Eddy lives in Ft. Collins, Colorado with his tribe.
