Dennis Doud was born in the same hospital as John Wayne, living his entire childhood in Iowa until leaving for higher education. After graduating from LeTourneau College, (now a university), in Longview, Texas, he returned home to the Hawkeye State. He left Iowa again to chase down his almost-a-wife who had taken a job in the Northwoods of Wisconsin. It’s a place called “God’s Country” and it has been truly that to Dennis, his bride of 35 years, and their now-grown-up kids.

Dennis has enjoyed reading and writing since elementary school and, to this day, still barely tolerates arithmetic. He has written various stories and articles and is now writing faith-based screenplays, ‘Tweener home-school adventure books, and sporadically scribbling an online blog.
