Features & Details
Kenneth W. McDorman was born and raised in upstate New York. After graduating from SUNY Oswego in 1986, he received his commission as a 2nd Lieutenant in the U.S. Army's Aviation branch. The author, along with his wife Lynn, embarked on an Army career that lasted over 25 years. It brought them to many different duty stations in the United States and overseas as well. In 2020, the author, his wife, and their children moved one more time to a place near Wolcott, close to his childhood home. It is from this quiet setting the author began working on his lifelong dream of writing stories to entertain people of all generations. The author found the inspiration to write about Denmark from his mother. She was born and raised in Copenhagen, Denmark. His parents met in Copenhagen in the 1950s while his father was on a weekend pass while serving with the U.S. Army in Germany. They settled near the ancestral home in upstate New York where the author's family still lives today.
