About the author:
David Joe Griffin was born and raised in Rockcastle County, Kentucky. He is a 1962 graduate of Mt. Vernon High School, earned his BS degree in 1965 from Campbellsville University, and his Masters degree in 1984 from the University of Kentucky.
Griffin has truly exhibited the life of a "jack of all trades." Because his primary career was as a teacher, he supplemented his income over the years with a variety of jobs - from factory worker to car salesman to proprietor of his own professional photography studio. He taught high school chemistry, biology, and journalism for 38 years at three separate Kentucky schools (Campbellsville High, Mt. Sterling High, and George Rogers Clark High, Winchester KY) and also served a term as president of the Kentucky Science Teachers Association. Following his retirement from the teaching profession, Griffin's career as a writer was born when he began a weekly column for the local newspaper. This book is a collection of those essays.
Today, Griffin continues his public service in education as a member of the Powell County Board of Education. He resides on Furnace Mountain, Stanton, Kentucky, with his wife, Katherine.
