About the Author
Herbert George Wells was born on September 21, 1866, in England. At age 7, he suffered a broken leg. While resting his injury, Wells started reading books. As he grew older, he continued to enjoy reading and school. At 14, young Wells quit school to help his struggling family. Fortunately, he received a scholarship in 1883 and began studying science at a school in London. Soon after, Wells started writing. Some of his works, like The War of the Worlds, combine his love for storytelling and science.
As a teenager, Terry Davis was a third-string shooting guard for Spokane's Shadle Park High School junior varsity team. In his junior year, Davis turned to wrestling. He tool to the sport like a bear to a honeycomb and wrestled his remaining high school years. Today, Davis is a father, a writer, and ― in his words ― "a fat, old wrestling coach." He also teaches narrative and screenwriting at Minnesota State University, Mankato.
