Wayne Rohrer


Coming from a small town in the Midwest, the author used the Navy as a stepping stone to college in California where he got a degree from the California State University, Chico. During his first two years of college, he majored in Journalism where he learned the fine art of journalistic writing. He had a dream of traveling the world photographing and writing about current breaking events. Although the dream lives on, the photography and the writing have become more of a hobby than a career. That window of opportunity is gone, but the joy of writing remains strong. As is usually the case, life got in the way and he ended up getting a degree in a field totally unrelated to writing or photography. The bulk of his career was spent working in the California Department of Mental Health where he worked in various capacities ranging from a psychiatric nurse to the Hospital Administrator of one of the State hospitals. That is where his creative writing skills were really put to the test.

Looking back over the course of his career, the single most important element that stands above all others is his desire to tell stories. Being an avid reader, he read work related journals and scholarly books on treating the psychiatric patient, but he also read the entire works of authors such as Dean Koontz and John Grisham. He marveled at their ability to weave an engaging story. It was only through the encouragement of friends that he set out to write a book of his own.

The author has recently moved to Fort Myers, Florida, where he lives a quiet life.
