Roger Alan Skipper (Author)
Born in the Appalachian mountains of western Maryland, Roger Alan Skipper received a public-school vocational education, then served in the U.S. Navy during the Vietnam era. A career in the construction supply industry progressed from menial jobs to a top-level management position in a multi-store retail outlet. In 1999, at the age of forty-seven and shortly after paying his youngest son's final college tuition bill, Skipper resigned his position to pursue companion lifetime goals: his own college education and a career as a novelist. The award of the prestigious Jack Kent Cooke Graduate Scholarship propelled him to a graduate degree in writing. Skipper lives near his birthplace in the mountains, where he writes, hunts wild ginseng, picks the banjo, and builds musical instruments.
