About the author (2010)

Dick Taylor lives in Mercer Island, WA where he and his wife, Pat are recently retired. The home of 30 years also houses Cedric, English Cocker and two rescued kittens, Winston and Oliver. Pat has her passion for watercolors and the grandchildren. Dick shares the time and enjoyment of the grandchildren but has many more passions; at the top of the list, playing Saturday morning soccer, followed by breakfast with old friends to have a lively discussion of politics. He has remained active with the CU’s Letterman’s Club which promotes the former athlete’s interests, continues to travel at any opportunity, and tries to keep his hand in with developing new business interests. He is fortunate to still be married to his childhood sweetheart from their hometown, Pueblo, CO. He also feels blessed to have their two adult children and their families live in the Seattle area where they have many opportunities to share time.
