About the Author

John Coburn was born into a family that eventually grew to seven brothers, eight sisters, and fifty-four nieces and nephews (one hundred and four in the next generation). They were raised in Hawaii, with all but one graduating from the same small high school in the quaint village of Kahuku, on the island of Oahu. His family is a true cosmopolitan mix of races, cultures, languages, careers, and history, giving John a wealth of experience to draw on and an imagination to match. He initially began his writing career with McGraw-Hill Publishing in the field of Mathematics, but his love of family and the joy and laughter they shared grew very strong over the years. He hopes that you will share this exuberance in these stories.

John Coburn nació en una familia que finalmente resultó en siete hermanos, ocho hermanas y cincuenta y cuatro sobrinas y sobrinos (ciento cuatro en la siguiente generación). Se criaron en Hawai, y todos menos uno se graduaron de la misma pequeña escuela secundaria en el pintoresco pueblo de Kahuku, en la isla de Oahu. Su familia es una verdadera mezcla cosmopolita de razas, culturas, idiomas, carreras e historia, lo que le da a John una gran experiencia en la que basarse y una imaginación a la altura. Inicialmente comenzó su carrera como escritor en McGraw-Hill Publishing en el campo de las matemáticas, pero su amor por la familia y la alegría y la risa que compartieron se hicieron muy fuertes con los años. Espera que compartas esta exuberancia en estas historias.
