The author, Sean Kinney, is an idealistic pragmatist and unapologetic Yankee, priding himself on being a dog's best friend. In turns he has been an entrepreneur, writer, middle-school teacher, car salesman and sailor but always a skeptical and good-humored student of the Universe. Most importantly he believes in the positive attributes of humanity. Currently, he lives in Wisconsin's Saint Croix River Valley where he is working to build a railroad on an old steel mill and writing about his golden-doodle and being perpetually cold.
