JOE SORENSEN is by profession an inventor, holder of a few dozen or so patents. His most recognizable is surely the Quick-Grip, a one-hand-operable clamp preferred by woodwork-ers throughout the world. That invention came from an unknown inventor to be named ‘Best of What’s New’ by Popular Science Magazine in 1989. During the tenure of the patents, the Quick-Grip product line grossed nearly a billion dollars in sales.
Born in Sioux City and raised on the other side of the broad Missouri, Sorensen hunted, fished, married and helped raise a family like other Nebraska lads. But then something happened. He left it all behind and moved west, first to the mountains of Montana, then to the shores of California.
Brought finally to his senses by the cold waters of the Pacific, Sorensen decided to become of all things, a writer. His writings are virtually unknown. But – like the clamp – they may well find a following. We shall see.
