Does anyone know where to find a biography on Joe Coomer? Has anyone seen comments by Joe Coomer on his book Apologizing to Dogs?

I am doing a book study on Pocketful of Names in a few weeks. I can't seem to find any information on the author. We usually give a little biographical information before the review. Can anyone help?

Loverof books, I'm sure by now you've found some biographical information about Joe Coomer, the author of "A Pocketful of Names." If not, you should Google his name. You'll get all the bio you can use.
The main thing to know about Joe Coomer is that he is an excellent and reliable writer, one book after the other, either fiction or non fiction. I am especially fond of his "A House By A Pond" (about the building of his home outside Azle, Texas) and his boat building book, "Sailing in a Spoonful of Water." I read these about once a year.

I'm in agreement about the writing excellence of one Joe Coomer. The first book I read by him was Beachcombing for a Shipwrecked God. It ought to be made into a movie. The second one was Sailing in Spoonful of Water. It inspired me to do virtually the same thing one day. The joys of resurrecting any old means of transportation and successfully rebuilding, refurbishing, and taking the vessel out for a spin has got to be the ultimate source of satisfaction in human activities.
His metaphors and keen detailed observations are prescient...spot on and memorable.
