W. Strawn Douglas


William Strawn Douglas is me, or I am him, or whatever way you want to say it. I am ‎an expert on being Strawn as it is easy to talk about yourself.‎

I was born on the 23rd of October, 1961 so I come to you as either a Libra or Scorpio, ‎depending on what zodiac you use.‎

I have been a student, a cook, a marine, an oilfield worker and an avid bicyclist in the ‎Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota.‎

Mom was a nurse and nursing instructor while my father was a doctor at the Mayo ‎Clinic. I grew up in the Mayo shadow in Rochester, Minnesota. ‎

I live near Mankato, Minnesota in the south central great plains of our prairie state.‎

Presently I am living on a veteran’s pension and trying to learn how to write books.‎
