About the Author
Tom Allemeier was born in Lima, Ohio, in 1950. He spent his early childhood playing football and baseball with the neighbor boys, and exploring the woods with his dog, Skip.
His parents divorced when he was ten and he spent the next few years living in Columbus, Ohio, and downtown Lima. He then returned to live with his father and stepmother in his childhood home until he graduated from Elida High School in 1969.
Allemeier was drafted into the Army in March 1970, spent fourteen months in Vietnam and served until October 1972.
He worked a number of jobs and then, still working, attended Ohio State University and graduated in 1990 with a bachelor's degree in journalism.
In 1996, he returned to Vietnam as a tourist, fell in love with the place, and he has been living and working there ever since as an English teacher at the International English School in Ho Chi Minh City.
