Dex McLaughlin was born in Clearfield Pennsylvania, however, spent the majority of his life in Lancaster Pa. He currently resides in Reynoldsville, Pa with his fiance Judy Trotz. His style is unorthodox, and I find that very intriguing. At times I thought I was reading Shakespeare! It's an amazing read, I actually got the chills! I highly recommend this book to anyone, it is a very real and down-to-earth cool read.
