John Vedder grew up in the Greater Daytona Beach Area of Florida and has lived his life there. He and his wife, Sunshine, own Vedderitaville—a riverfront home on the Intracoastal Waterway, where they have resided for eighteen years.
His current pleasures are sailing, fishing, gourmet cooking, writing, adding to his artwork and music collections, cruising with his wife and two Labradors in their pontoon boat to Disappearing Island, drag-strip racing his 1971 Dodge Challenger 440 RT, honing his long-range shooting skills with his Sharps buffalo rifle, and sitting with a cold six-pack on their dock in the evenings.
A few of his many past enjoyments were wrestling with alligators in the wild and mischievously releasing them in town; seining the shark-infested waters of Ponce de Leon Inlet after midnight for the much sought after migrating roe mullet; and hunting for and tangling with diamondback rattlesnakes in the area’s swamps and highlands. He skinned those snakes to make church neckties and hatbands for the neighborhood kids, earning him the kids’ nickname Snake Man. The skins delighted the kids, but they refused to taste any of his rattlesnake stews.
