About the Author:

Galen Winter is a retired (he says "reformed") attorney. He lived in Mexico and in Puerto Rico, traveling extensively in South America, Central America and the Caribbean while negotiating and managing contracts between United States corporations and Latin companies and governments. He became a Consultant in International affairs, then a domestic corporation attorney and finished his professional career as a private practitioner in a small upper Wisconsin town where, he says "a man can associate with dogs and shotguns without arousing too much suspicion." For nearly three decades he wrote back-page humor columns for national and regional outdoor sports magazines and has hunted and fished all over the hemisphere. Other books by Galen Winter include: The Aegis Conspiracy, The Chronicles of Major Peabody, The Journals of Major Peabody, The Best of the Major, Backlash and Backlash II.
