Val Gunn, as his wife enjoys saying, is a jock-nerd. Both sports and prose seemed to natural to him–though he wrote off the writing for a time to pursue a football playing and coaching career. He has been fortunate to travel and live in many exotic places across the globe. As an on-again, off-again expat; Val is cursed with a perpetual case of wanderlust. This was tempered a bit in 2003 with the birth of their triplets. For the moment he and his family lives in northwest Florida–but don’t hold your breath.
