About the Author

Criss Hinson was raised in North Carolina, joined the local Army National Guard at the age of seventeen, and transferred to the regular Air Force three years later. Before his March, 1967 assignment to Vietnam, he worked as a hospital medic at Travis Air Force Base in California, where he met his future wife. After returning to the States in 1968, Criss stayed in California, got married, went to college, and became a geologist. He and his wife traveled to job sites throughout the western United States, living in a 35-foot- long, fifth-wheel trailer. They were accompanied by a two-hundred pound Saint Bernard and two Persian cats. They both, eventually, sort of retired and moved to Washington State, always sharing their home with an assortment of inside pets and outside animals. Unauthorized Acts is Criss's first book. Until now he has never discussed his tour of duty in Vietnam...not even with his wife....
