about me

I am Walt Sautter. I have taught chemistry and physics for forty years and am have been retired for nine years. Additionally, I coached wrestling for seventeen years. I have been married to 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. Many times, these comments were voiced in an arrogant, condescending tone and that always bothered me. I felt if they all knew how to write well, then they wouldn’t need a teacher. It was the teacher’s job to help improve their skills, not continually complain about them.
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 four books came in to being. I hope you enjoy them.
I have placed an evaluation / review form on my website under "Contact". If you read one of my books please fill out the form (even if it's a bad review).
