Skeeter Wilson was born in Kenya along the edge of the Gikuyu highlands. His graduate work was in historical African fiction and creative writing. He lives in Auburn Washington with his wife and two dogs. He gardens, holds writers conferences, runs an Indy publishing company, and has an annual African feast with fellow Africans and friends. When he gets bored, he goes to his writer’s nook nestled in a treehouse in his back yard—and writes.
His fictions include Worthless People, a coming of age story of a young white boy who grew up in Africa knowing that one day he would have to leave his home and go to a place called America. His second book, Crossing Rivers, is a story of a Gikuyu woman who was born before colonialism, and lived in the early days of Colonialism in Kenya.Escape from Stupid is a written scrapbook of Poetry, Vignette, and Nonfiction from his life.
