Don Callaway has been writing for as long as he can remember. The world of books was a very important part of his childhood and he continues to be a bookaholic to this day.
He wrote while attaining both his undergraduate and master’s degree from LSU and was a founding member of a playwright’s workshop theater while an undergraduate.
Don has been a bartender, a nightclub manager, a public school teacher, a university instructor, a callcenter representative, and an instructional designer. He has written stories and plays and poems as well as a sci-fi novel, We Three Kings (unpublished).
While serving as a public school teacher, he noticed how few historical novels, set during theRevolutionary War, were expressly written and published for boys that were. This was the germ of his historical novel, The Captain’s Boy. He is currently composing a sequel, to be called The Captain’s Spy.
Don grew up in Louisiana and has lived in Colorado Springs, CO; Lancaster, CA; and Denver, CO. He is presently retired and writing from his home in Cheyenne, Wyoming.
