Bo Thunboe is a suburbanite--born and raised--and still lives in Chicago's western suburbs. When bad eyesight killed his dream to fly helicopters for the Marines, he went to college. It didn't go well, and a few lost years later Bo was out in the world laying bricks and repossessing cars. Then he met his wife, Diane, got his head on straight, and went back to college, where he earned a BA in Economics and a JD from Northern Illinois University. (Go Huskies!) After a couple decades spent lawyering he is now a full-time writer.
