I am Walt Sautter. I have taught chemistry and physics for forty years and I have been retired for nine years. Additionally, I coached wrestling for seventeen years. I have been married to the same woman for thirty-nine years and have two children.
All of this has absolutely nothing to do with my writing! Here’s what does.
When I was still teaching, many times I heard complaints from my colleagues in the English Department about the poor writing skills of their students. Often, these comments were voiced in an arrogant, condescending tone and that always bothered me. I felt if all of the students knew how to write well, then they wouldn’t need a teacher in the first place. It is the teacher’s job to help improve their skills, not continually complain about their lack of skill.
I was frequently tempted to reply with “Well what have you written?” Of course I never did, because I feared their possible reply, “You haven’t written anything either?”
That thought became my motivation to write “The Three Dollar Phoenix” just so I could answer their anticipated retort with, “Yes I have, I’ve written a book!”
After I finished “The Three Dollar Phoenix”, I found that I really enjoyed writing and continued to write. Thus, my additional six books came in to being.
Sticks – A Golfer’s Tale
Fish Farm-Violent Vindication
Who Killed Coach?
The Adventures of Jesus
The Blood of Judas – Vampires of the Third Reich
Sheet Shoot – How I Became a Terrorist
I have also made video trailers for each of these which you can see at You Tube- wnsautter
I hope you enjoy them.
