“Phil Drake has spent most of his working life as an editor and reporter at several newspapers and wire services in Southern California, Ohio and Montana. It has to be painfully obvious that this is his first book. He would write another but he can’t find the time because there is just too much good stuff on TV. He is a graduate of Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio, and grew up in Pennsylvania, Illinois, Indiana and Ohio. Drake now lives in Montana with his dog, Pica, who serves as the brains of the outfit. They are both honorary Chubolians.”
