About William Zellmann

I was born on December 8, 1942 and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, where I achieved nothing notable.

I joined the Navy to avoid the draft, and found that I quite enjoyed Navy life. I became a Personnelman, and for the next twenty years was largely successful in tricking the Navy into thinking that I wasn't really a lazy slob.

During this time, I met and married a wonderful woman. We had a beautiful daughter together. My wife passed away in 2008, and I had the incredible luck to meet another amazing woman. We married in December 2010.

After retiring from the Navy, I attended the University of Arkansas. I received a BSBA in Human Resources Management, to my utter surprise (and that of some of my professors!).

I seem to be attracted to low-paying government jobs, and upon graduation, I became employed by the State of Arkansas in the employment field. After another 20-year career, I retired from the state in 2011. Since then my life has been devoted to writing and convincing my new wife she didn't really marry a lazy bum.

As part of my never-ending quest to avoid working for a living, I have been writing for as long as I can remember. While in the Navy, I submitted several short pieces to gun and auto hobbyist magazines, and was amazed when I found that they actually sent me money! Not much, but still . . .
