Len Waldron was born in Cape Girardeau, Missouri and grew up fishing and hunting in and around the Missouri Bootheel along the Mississippi river. The son and grandson of avid field-trialers, he spent a great deal of his youth traveling across the southeastern United States towing horses and chasing bird dogs.
When not traveling the field trial circuit, Len spent his formative years with his best friend, namesake, and grandfather, Leonard V. Waldron exploring the rivers, lakes, ponds, creeks, farms and fields of Southeast Missouri. He wrote his first published outdoor story as teen ager, with the support and encouragement of his infinitely patient junior high middle school English teacher.
Len attended Wake Forest University, Winston-Salem, North Carolina where he earned a degree in Political Science. Upon graduation, he was commissioned and served as an Infantry officer in the United States Army. He later returned to Wake Forest to earn an MBA from the Babcock Graduate School of Management.
Actively writing since professionally since 1999, Len’s writing has taken him across Africa, North and South America, and Europe. He’s published dozens of stories in numerous publications on fishing, hunting, adventure travel, firearms, knives, dogs, movies, and automobiles—and best of all people.
Len currently lives north of Salt Lake City, Utah.
