About the Author

I am 54 years old and my wife Pam and I live in Hibbing, MN. I coach and teach at Hibbing Community College and Pam runs the Mitchell-Tappan House Bed & Breakfast in Hibbing. Pam & I own the B&B but she is the Innkeeper and I claim to be the Groundskeeper, either way, she is the boss and does a great job. Come stay with us sometime. Pam and I have been married for 32 years and have two grown children. Lexie [Baack], who lives in Auburn, NE with her husband Jeff, works as a coach and choir accompanist at the high school and Jeff farms. Our son Blaine, lives in Minneapolis, MN and works in a juvenile detention center at city hall in Minneapolis. I have taught and coached all over Minnesota for the past 33 years and have cherished every day of my career. I grew up the son of Jack and Patricia Turnbull and one of four siblings. I have four younger sisters, Terri, Lisa [Rahja], and Stacie [Jennings]. My dad was a career navy man, so we moved all over the U.S.. He retired from the Navy in 1975 and we moved from New Jersey to Ely, MN where I started my junior year of high school. I received my A.A. dgree from Vermilion Community College in Ely, MN in 1979. My Bachelor's Degree from Bemidji Stae University in Bemidji, MN in 1981 and my Master's Degree from the U.S. Sports Academy in Daphne, AL in 1990. I had never attempted to write a book before now. I had thought about it and had been encouraged to do so by friends and family members. A couple of years ago, I decided to take on the project and have found it to be both a humbling and rewarding experience. In my 54 years on this earth I can not pretend to have anything figured out, but I do think I have a unique story to tell and I hope it strikes a chord with my readers. I have had these random thoughts for as long as I can remember and I've managed to write a few down for you to consider and ponder. I have always taken pride in being referred to as "Coach," second to my favorite titles of "Husband" and "Dad". I never dreamed I would see "Author" in front of my name. I can only hope this might help me gain entry into the "Stupid Man" club' if and when I get to heaven.
