Ron Stout was raised in Los Angeles, California, and earned his BA in pre-medicine at Occidental College. Following two Korean tours as a navy officer on a destroyer, he attended LIFE Bible College, majoring in biblical Greek and theology and graduating with a BTh. With children arriving, Ron worked in a corporate office in Los Angeles while attending USC in the evening as a graduate student in the School of Business. Ron and his family then moved to San Diego County, where Ron spent 21 years in the stock market as a broker, a branch manager of an NYSE member firm, and an independent registered investment advisor. Many of the experiences in Fireflies occurred while Ron and his wife, Corinne, were living on their beautiful ranch in Julian, California. They then moved to Arizona, where Ron studied agriculture at the University of Arizona. The Stouts plunged into apple orchards and the Cider Mill, a highly visible retail operation on Interstate 10 at Willcox, Arizona, for 22 years. Today, Ron and Corinne have retired on their Arizona ranch. Their daughter, Robin, and her family live nearby.
