About the Author

Dave Meurer is the father of two boys and was, according to rumor, once a boy himself. Raised as the third of his parents' five kids, Dave got an early taste of family. Now his childhood experiences and his time as the father of two teenage boys have been written in his outrageously funny book, Boyhood Daze. Less a parenting guide--of which he feels there are too many-- than an industrial sized dose of laughter, Boyhood Daze is for all harried parents who need to know they are not alone as they tackle the enormous task of raising boys.

When his is not engaged in dispensing sound parental advice (such as, "TURN THAT MUSIC DOWN!"), Dave works for the United States House of Representatives as an aide to a Californian Congressman. He received a dual degree from California State University, Chico, in Political Science and Information and Communication Studies and he currently serves as a liaison to state and local elected officials as well as to the general public. He travels extensively through the district spending much of his time on many complex and controversial issues.

Dave finds that humor writing provides a valuable emotional outlet at the end of the day. The ability to laugh at himself, at wry observations he makes about family life not only keeps him sane but translates to the page without losing a chuckle.

A talented writer whose humor columns and other articles may be found in the Clarion and various northern California newspapers, Dave has won numerous writing awards and honors, including the top scholarships from the California Newspaper Publishers Association, the Gannet Foundation, and the Laymen's National Bible Association.

Boyhood Daze is his first book. Married since 1981 to his wife, Dale, and father to two boys, Dave decided to write a book about the adventure of raising boys, which he has termed "a multiyear, monumental battle to simply get them to eat zucchini, not to mention mold them into mature and responsible Christian husband and father material." Although Dave employs a great deal of satire and cutting-edge humor, Boyhood Daze is woven through and through with the message that parenthood is a real blessing from God, filled with fun and learning.

The entire Meurer family makes their home in Northern California.
