Monte R. Anderson


As a second generation military man, Monte had seen quite a bit of the world and the United States by the time he entered high school. He carried on the family tradition by attending the Military Academy at West Point, New York where he earned his BS in Engineering, and, upon graduation, was commissioned a second lieutenant in the US Army. His twenty two years career carried him to many parts of the world including Vietnam, Korea, and Germany. He became a student of history, particularly military history. As an Infantry officer, Monte developed an understanding of military tactics and strategy. This knowledge was put to good use when he was assigned as an instructor at the Army Command and General Staff College where he taught tactics to the Army’s future staff officers and generals for three years. He also studied the martial arts, earning a second degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do, and taught wrestling, self-defense, and coached the West Point Karate club at the Military Academy.

Although he has written many things for the military, and has been published in Army magazine and the Corps of Engineers Journal, Archimedes of Syracuse: The Chest of Ideas, if his first novel. Archimedes is the first time Monte has been able to combine all the things he loves; engineering, tactics, strategy, mathematics, history, food, martial arts, and of course, romance.

Monte resides in Elmira, New York with his wife, Kathryn and their two rescued greyhounds. Between Monte and Kathryn, they have six children and four grandchildren.
