More About the Author

I grew up in La Jolla, CA, one of the most beautiful parts of the state. Upon graduating from high school I went on a summer tour of Europe that became an extended year abroad in Salzburg, Austria. The travel bug bit me. I returned to the States and after going to UCSB, ending up with a degree in Geography in 1969. I set out to save $ in order to travel Europe again.

In 1970 I left the States again but soon found Europe too tame to appease the wanderlust in me. A visit to Morocco fired up my need to see third world countries and something different than Europe. In 1971 in Turkey, I hooked up with several Westerners from the states, plus a German and Englishman. This was the beginning of a four years wanderlust which took me three times overland from Europe to India with stays in all the countries in between.

In 1975 I headed overland to Australia through South East Asia. My first daughter was born in 1976. My wife and I bought land with friends and tried home steading for two and a half years, growing some of our food, raising goats and having a second child in 1977. In 1979, after having been gone from the States for almost 9 years, I returned with a wife and 2 children.

I eventually earned a teaching degree and taught Special Needs children for 24 years. I retired in 2008 and decided to write down all my travel adventures after 30 years.

The book, "Living Beneath the Radar", is the account of my 9 year travels. In 2010 I moved from Flagstaff, AZ where I lived for ten years, to Phoenix and started writing, "Learning to Love the Peso" which documented my move to Mexico. The Peso book has information for the reader who is thinking of moving to Mexico or even staying for a while. My wife, Suzanne, and I have been in Baja since June of 2011. In 2013 we moved back to AZ. and now live in New River. Just finished a crime mystery novel trilogy. The first book, Brain Bleed should be out in 2014.

"Centavo, A Dog From Mexico" is my third book. This book is based on the true story of a street dog who is adopted by Americans and brought back to the states to live. Part of the profits go to Viva, a clinic here in San Felipe or to any shelter in the town where the reader lives who buys the book as makes a request as to where the money should go.

"The 60s, If You Remember It You Didn't Live It" is my fourth project. It is written mostly for those who did not live during this period in America but have always had questions about it. The author, me, with the help of Wikipedia and his own adventures does his best to give the reader a picture of this life changing period in time.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Jeffrey Crimmel's children's book, Centavo is based on a true story of a little puppy growing up on the beaches of San Felipe, Mexico. Generations of this dogs' family wandered the beach eating scraps and learning to survive, until a tourist's family adopted her. They bring her back to the United States to live with them, and introduce her to their other pets.

The author wrote Centavo to bring to light the need for animal rescue and spay/neuter programs in poor countries. He was inspired by Steve Forman, who helped spearhead San Felipe Animal Rescue (SFAR) along with a woman from Phoenix, Arizona. Steve then went on to found another clinic in Mexico, and helped with fund raising until his death in 2011. Through Steve's efforts, the dogs on this beach have been adopted and the majority spayed or neutered. Jeffrey also wrote this book to help in the fund raising aspect of a newly formed program merged out of the 2 Steve put together. I read this little gem on Kindle. It's a good story, great lesson and has photos of Centavo and other dogs mentioned in the book. 5 stars, all ages...
