Donald A. Bemis

Author Bio:

Don Bemis was born in Carlsbad, New Mexico, and graduated from New Mexico State University. He met and married Lois while in college. In 1979, they packed up their belongings, two kids, and a pair of cats, and moved to Michigan.

"Heavens to Louie", his first book, originated as a crazy dream in 2005. He made it into a short story the next day. Lois said, “Okay, now turn it into a book.” Don had just been downsized from work and had plenty of time. It was a lovely excuse to do what he had always enjoyed. The book was published in 2007. Then he was rehired but had caught the writing bug. "Count Otto’s Dragon" was published in 2009, followed by "Mary in Transit" in 2010.

Don has worked in engineering nearly all of his adult life. He also has been a miner, substitute teacher, and handyman. He is on the South Haven, Michigan, City Council, and he plays clarinet in church and community bands. He and Lois have five adult children and a growing population of grandchildren.
