About the Author

William Leon Penniman was born in 1901 and died in 1994. He worked as an industrial engineer for most of his life with a shoe company in St. Louis. From his early 20’s until his death he wrote of things in his world as a way of exploring his relationship with that world and the people in it. He wrote short stories – some of which appeared in an earlier collection titled “From Dad and Me” - as well as poems– all of which were published in a collection titled “Behind the Little House”. While none of his work was published in his lifetime, it was preserved for his family who have lovingly collected and published it in this and the two previously mentioned works. William David Penniman was born in 1937 and currently lives in Columbus Ohio after retiring from the State University of New York where he was a professor and administrator. Unlike his father, he worked for many employers and in many locations. He has a background in engineering and behavioral science and worked as an information scientist. He, like his father, wrote short stories (and even some poetry) and continues to do so. He has enjoyed compiling and editing his father’s works and adding his own to those in this latest collection of stories. Besides writing he restores/builds old cars.
