Norm Schriever

Biography

Norm Schriever is a humorist, cultural mad scientist, and enemy of the comfort zone. He grew up in Connecticut and graduated from the University of Connecticut, where he was never accused of over-studying, and went on to live in North Carolina, Colorado and most recently in Northern California.

Dissatisfied with a conventional existence, Norm sold or donated all of his possessions and moved down to Costa Rica in 2011 to pursue his lifelong dream of traveling the world and writing about his journey. His first book was written in the sleepy surf town of Tamarindo with the help of his secret weapons: fresh ocean air and Baileys in his morning coffee.

He's since lived in Nicaragua, Vietnam, Thailand, Cambodia, and, currently, the Philippines.
