Meet the Author

Born and raised in Chicago, Norman Weeks studied in Rome, earned his degree in history, then settled into a Roman residence. With Rome as a base, he traveled in fifteen European countries, including those of the old Soviet bloc. With an interest in ancient cultures, he has cruised throughout the Mediterranean on archaeological itineraries.

Back in the Americas, he served two years as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Brazil, then ventured into Central America, Mexico, and the Caribbean. He has guided wilderness excursions into the Minnesota-Ontario Boundary Waters.

In Asia, he immersed himself in the Buddhist cultures of Thailand, India, and Nepal.

Norman Weeks is an experiential writer. He writes about living in Nature and within a culture.

Of the former, his NOOK ebook, NATURE NORM'S NORTH WOODS, relates his experiences in the woods-and-waters of the northland, while TROPICAL ECSTASY explores the Amazon and the northeast of Brazil.

Of culture, he enters into one of the oldest civilizations in TWO WEEKS IN ETERNAL EGYPT. Culture-versus-Nature is a principal theme of WALDEN CONTEMPORANEOUS. ROMAN RUMINATIONS presents "the psychology of the human as an enculturated animal".

Throughout his various writings, Norman Weeks expresses a cosmopolitan appreciation of our world.
