Larry J. Chase originally hails from Ohio and currently makes his home in Idaho, where he has lived for nearly forty years. A graduate of Boise State University, he spent twenty-nine years working in radio and television, beginning with his military assignment with Armed Forces Radio and Television for which he was extensively trained.
Chase was stationed in South Korea in 1968 and experienced firsthand the trials and tribulations the US military encountered during this very memorable, turbulent time. From this rich perspective, he penned his debut novel, FIGMO 68, which fictionalizes elements of his own story to tell an entirely new one full of adventure, romance, crime, and conflict.
