About Fred

Fred Myers

Fred Myers, born and raised in rural Indiana, lives in Alabama. Trained in agriculture at Purdue University, an inner voice caused him to spurn the usual employment track and become a writer and photographer. Despite the lack of formal training and experience in both disciplines, he spent the next thirty-one years in a myriad of mostly agriculturally related corporate and freelance experiences. He achieved a high level of success serving as writer, journalist, editor, and photographer. Next, he published a series of popular guides for cruising boaters to earn a national reputation in that recreational niche. Most recently, a brief incident while vacationing in Nova Scotia caused him to venture into the world of fiction. The result is his first novel, Goodbye Akron.
