About the Author
Derek Elkins was born in Independence, Missouri, a suburb of Kansas City, a very long time ago, when there used to be cows right up the street. He became interested in writing as a direct result of some encouraging words left by a teacher on a writing assignment in the Fourth Grade. Since then, Derek has been writing scripts, short stories, songs, advertisements, plays and finally…a novel. He enjoys reading, making fun of his kids, playing video games and taking extensive naps. He currently still lives in the Kansas City area with his wife of twenty years, his five children and two cats, although he’s trying to get rid of one of the cats.
