Kenn Amdahl

Kenn writes books, poetry and music. While not yet in his "golden years" they are certainly beginning to be mysteriously tinged yellow. He's the author of There Are No Electrons: Electronics for Earthlings, The Land of Debris and the Home of Alfredo and Joy Writing, and co author of Algebra Unplugged and Calculus for Cats. He recently released a quirky novel called Jumper and the Bones as a Kindle book. His poetry has been published in over fifty journals. He's written over a hundred songs. When no one's looking he teaches creative writing classes for local community colleges. From 2004 to March 2006 or so he co-hosted an author interview show called "Off the Page"on local cable TV, featuring authors such as Bruce Cameron, Connie Willis, Barbara Steiner, Francine Mathews, Leslie Kane, and many others.

He's been active in the Colorado book community for years and has been President of Colorado Independent Publishers Association, Vice President of Colorado Authors League, treasurer of Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers, Founder and Emperor for Life of Book Organizations of Colorado, and an active volunteer with Publishers Association of the West and the Colorado Association of Libraries.

He's played guitar for forty years and is starting to get the hang of it. He's played on several albums (that's what they used to call CD's when they were much larger and black) and on a few local TV commercials. From 1990 until about 2004 he played and sang in the acoustic group "Cottonwood" which released two CD's that included several of his original songs. Now he plays in his basement.

Kenn wasted a good deal of his youth in commercial real estate, but has seen the light and given up the addiction of "making money" in favor of folk music, writing books, and publishing. But every now and then he still feels a craving to pay his bills on time. He breathes deeply and pretty soon the urge passes.

He lives with his wife and high school sweetheart, Cheryl, in Broomfield, Colorado.

Kenn was interviewed in 2004 by Jenna Glatzer, editor in chief of Absolute Write. We have copied the interview here. He thought it cool when Dean Kaman, inventor of the Segway, recommended Calculus for Cats the New York Academy of Sciences radio show.

Paul Amdahl

Paul is Kenn Amdahl's oldest son. His degree in philosophy from the University of Northern Colorado prepared him well for fishing. Even a bad day of fishing is existential in some way, and a good day is a mystical celebration.

Paul has been lifting weights for so long he has become dangerously strong, and his father defers to his opinion even when they both know father always knows best.

He also plays guitar. Playing with the Halleck Street Ramblers in Washington exposed him to Dixieland jazz for the first time. Left alone he tends to play jazz.

An artist and lover of art, Paul lived for several years in New York, and visited virtually every art museum in the city. Then he moved to Washington State for a change of fish. But wherever he hangs his hat, he follows the Denver Broncos, Colorado Avalanche, and Colorado Rockies.

After writing The Barefoot Fisherman, Paul wrote two novels for children and young adults. He has not yet decided if he'd like to self publish those or let someone else take a look at them.

 

Jim Loats, Ph. D.

Jim Loats is a professor of mathematics at Metropolitan State College of Denver Colorado. He is the co-author of Algebra Unplugged and Calculus for Cats.

Beyond being an excellent and inhumanly patient instructor, Jim plays a mean tuba. He also plays dobro, pedal steel guitar, and acoustic guitar. He attends the Walnut Valley Festival, an annual bluegrass event in Winfield. Kansas with a faithfulness that borders on the pathological.

Jim plays dobro and sings in the group Just Desserts. They are releasing a CD in late 2008.

Except for his wife Dee, sailing is Jim's passion. If he's not teaching or manipulating an algorythm, and the lakes aren't frozen, you'll find him leading the wind across the water in his boat, a huge grin on his face and a loud laugh ready to explode from him.

His other website is at Metropolitan State University

 

C.A. Turner

Carol is a technical writer who lives outside Boulder, Colorado. She has a masters degree in creative writing from Bennington College in Vermont. She is the author of Economics for the Impatient. She's also written several literary novels that will be published in the near future. Once that happens, a copy of Economics for the Impatient will probably become a nearly priceless collectors item. Buy one now, while we still have an economy.
