Tony Padegimas
Phoenix, AZ

Tony Padegimas is, among many other things, a free-lance writer who spends as much time as possible in his hammock slung in some random part of a national forest. His wife, two children, and two dogs join him on occasion, but report mixed feelings about whether these endeavors are really worthwhile. In addition to wanderings in the wilderness, he also chronicles sports, fitness, historical curiosities, technical theatre (which is also his day job) and the inside guts of buildings. His work has appeared in numerous local and regional magazines and a handful of national publications. This is his first book.
