Don Jacobson views life like Hemingway's "Movable Feast." There is so much to sample and experience. His literary output is as varied as his worldview. His fascination with cooking has led him to write cookbooks for hikers and boaters. His popular "The One Pan Gourmet" has been a bestseller for 20 years and is a favorite in the backpacks of Boy Scouts and Trekkers across the USA.
With his wife, Pam Whitfield, a Registered Dietitian and Certified Diabetes Educator, Don wrote "Roadcookin': A Long Haul Driver's Guide to Healthy Eating" which offers health and nutrition information as well as recipes for America's Long-haul OTR truckers.
And, Don is an avid Jane Austen Fan Fiction fan! His "Bennet Wardrobe" stories put a new twist on the Austen canon--time travel. The magical transport ideas of C.S. Lewis, J.K. Rowling and Susannah Clarke are expanded with a new device. Using it as the "MacGuffin", the personalities of Austen's secondary characters are allowed to grow to "satisfying" conclusions, although not necessarily in the Regency Era.
He lives in the Seattle Washington Area with his wife and rather large (24 pound--a puma?) cat named Bear. Don is an avid cyclist, riding dozens of miles every week in preparation for one-day Centuries (100 Miles) as well as multi-day charity rides like the AIDs Ride (500 miles) and the Make-A-Wish Michigan ride (300 miles). Don also enjoys entertaining friends and family with multi-course dinners with wine pairings throughout.
