About the Author
Author Stephen Mulligan was born in Ottawa, Canada, and raised in Aylmer, Quebec-a small town on the border of Ontario. Like most Canadian kids, he started playing hockey at a young age. He recalls many bitterly cold weekends skating on outdoor rinks while freezing fingers and toes.
After his house league playing days were over, Stephen focused his energies on academics. Since the early 1980’s he received a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology from the University of Ottawa and four associate degrees from various other post-secondary institutes in Canada. Stephen worked in the social service field for almost twenty-five years.
In 2004 Stephen and his wife moved to the United States and presently live in Washington, Pennsylvania. Stephen enjoys writing, traveling, exercising and attending sporting and music events.
