Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming--WOO HOO what a ride!" --Unknown

Background Information

Ron Starr draws on more than a half-century watching, listening, and absorbing the subtleties of life. Starr uses this collage of knowledge to create fictional accounts of ordinary people in extraordinary situations. Starr’s stories delve into the constant struggle between good and evil while exhibiting a wry sense of life’s comedies. This allows his characters to lighten all but the most extreme struggles. Born into a second-generation German Catholic family in Spokane, Washington, Black Franciscan Nuns and the even more demanding Jesuit priests educated Starr. The combination forced him to develop a personality marked by disciplined self-reliance but also enabled him to gain a love of the English language.As a teenager, Starr established four goals for his life. In no particular order they were, learn to fly, write a novel, build a house, and start a business. His wife lays claim to soloing a small plane. Starr claims the other three.While climbing the corporate ladder to the executive suite, Starr developed a style of writing and speaking best described as direct, but with subtle humorous overtones. During this twenty-five year period Starr often dreamed of trying his hand at fiction writing but fear, combined with the demands of his professional and family life prevailed.At fifty, Starr made yet another in a series of life changing decisions. He resigned from corporate America, founded a software company, met and married the love of his life—and stopped dreaming about writing novels. He worked at it. Starr has completed four novels. He is currently working on his latest novel and two books for new authors on the ABC’s of starting, finishing, and editing novels.A graduate of the University of Washington, Starr has traveled through forty-nine states and many foreign countries. Three states in particular, Florida, Maine, and Washington, provide a wealth of ideas and settings for the his novels. Starrlives with his wife Doris and their cats in Cocoa Beach, Florida.
