Ed Sutter was born
and raised in and around Cleveland, Ohio. He claims that, in order
to evade the draft, he enlisted in the Marine Corps—it worked—he
was never drafted. Over four years the Marines sent him to some
very hot places. Upon discharge, he returned to Ohio and found
that he could no longer tolerate the Cleveland weather. He needed
to move somewhere sunny, and Arizona filled the bill.
Ed has a Masters in Business Administration. Over the years he’s
worked as a paperboy, truck driver, electronics technician, manufacturing
engineer, test engineer, and technical writer. Before he moved
into fiction, he wrote manuals, procedures, or technical instructions.
Ed has studied and taught Oriental martial arts for around thirty
years. In his spare time—such as it is—he reads, writes,
snow skis, scuba dives, plays racquetball, golfs, and runs.
In 2001, he decided to write the type of books he enjoyed reading.
Since then, he’s completed five novel-length manuscripts
and four screenplays. The Magic Shop is his first published story.
