About the Author

Thom Satterlee was born in Batavia, New York. As a boy, his family moved to Georgia, where he attended elementary school and enjoyed playing youth soccer. His family returned to western New York around the time Thom started high school. He spent his junior year as an exchange student in Denmark. Thom earned degrees from Houghton College, SUNY College at Brockport, and the University of Arkansas. In 1989, he married Kathy Faust. They lived briefly in Maine, Arkansas, and Florida before finally settling in Indiana where Thom taught creative writing at Taylor University for eleven years. He left teaching in 2011 in order to focus on writing and translating. His work has received many recognitions, including two fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, a Notable Book Award from the American Library of America, an Award of Merit from Christianity Today, and the Translation Prize from the American-Scandinavian Foundation. When he’s not reading or writing, he can often be found walking in his neighbor’s woods or watching soccer on TV.
