About the Author
Carl LaVO, a graduate of the University of Florida at Gainesville, is the author of Slade Cutter: Submarine Warrior and Back from the Deep: The Strange Story of the Sister Subs Squalus and Sculpin, both published by the Naval Institute Press. He has also written many articles for the Institute's two magazines, Proceedings and Naval History, and a variety of general-interest periodicals. His television appearances include the History Channel series Silent Service and Man, Moment and Machine.
An award-winning journalist, LaVO is assistant managing editor of the Courier Times in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, where he lives with his wife Mary Anne. He is an experienced scuba diver and has explored many of the water-filled caverns and subterranean rivers of Florida, exceeding depths of two hundred feet. A childhood interest in the atomic submarine Nautilus and the book Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea by Jules Verne gave him a lifelong curiosity about the Silent Service and undersea exploration.
