About The Author

David Mathews was born in the small town of Friend, Nebraska, a community of 1100 people once listed in Ripley’s Believe It or Not for having the world’s smallest police station—a tiny tool shed previously used by highway construction crews. He grew up in small towns in Kansas and Indiana before settling in Indianapolis after college. David describes himself as a “big dreamer with an over-active imagination.” Now living in Ohio, David and his wife, Donna, have six children between them, along with a son-in-law, daughter-in-law, three grandchildren, and two Boston terriers. He enjoys home remodeling, woodworking, bicycling, camping, and loves being a grandfather. David also never grows tired of watching Andy Griffith reruns.
