About the Author
William Allin Storrer A.B. Harvard ’58, M.F.A. Boston University ’62, Ph.D. Ohio University ’68, a native of Dearborn, Michigan, lives in Frankfort, Michigan. He holds the position of Adjunct Professor of Architecture at the University of Texas at Austin. A world expert on the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright, his two books, The Architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright, a complete catalog and The Frank Lloyd Wright Companion, have sold a hundred thousand copies and the latter work has been translated into Italian, Japanese, Mandarin Chinese and Simplified Chinese. Storrer has directed over 40 theatrical works in college and community theatres. For 40 years he was a critic for the British magazine Opera, and authored over 400 articles on theatre, music and related arts in magazines and newspapers. Exhibiting his nature and architectural photography in America and Great Britain, he is also a voracious reader (science fiction and mysteries), an itinerant birdwatcher, an energetic world traveler (70 countries in two ‘round-the-world journeys and various other sojourns) and a gregarious film buff. He serves as webmaster of both his Dearborn (Mich.) high school and Harvard College classes and has maintained the only web site that allows a comparison of the Perry Mason TV series with the books upon which many of the TV episodes were based. His latest endeavour, like his earlier ones, is comprehensive. It is the first presentation of a wine region with maps of every vineyard, stories of the winemakers and winery owners, recipes from the tasting room and winery staff and detailed statistics of what is grown on Michigan’s American Viticultural Area parallel peninsulas. An all-in-one handbook compendium of the wines of the area, this book explains how to tour the tasting rooms, how to taste and store your wines, as well as presenting some special recipes with which to drink your wines. Bill and Pat met in Norway. Once they started talking, they never stopped. Their courtship occurred over the Pacific Ocean between South Carolina and New Zealand, until it was decided they both should live in America. Patricia is from New Zealand, with a family background of dairy farming and then commercial beekeeping. She describes herself as a life-long professional computer geek who enjoys music, choir singing (soprano), gardening, cooking and history. And, oh yes, she enjoys writing and editing.
