About Mike Poppe

I was born in Rector, Arkansas. My parents were sharecroppers. Which is to say, we existed. Later, we moved to the city as my folks looked for a better opportunity. Largely because of the influence of a second grade teacher who encouraged my reading, I became an avid book reader.
In 1963, totally bored with the educational system in my school, I dropped out of high school. When I turned 17 in December of that year, I joined the Marine Corps, a move that I credit with laying the foundation for the rest of my life.
A four year enlistment included a year's "all expenses paid vacation" in the Republic of South Vietnam.
After returning to civilian life, I worked for nine months as an Industrial Engineering Clerk, then spent the next 34 years as a supervisor in the Trucking Industry.
The invention of the E-book gave me the confidence to ignore the fact that I was already in my sixties, and to go ahead and follow thru with a long held desire to try and write a novel.
It has been a great learning experience, and a lot of fun.
