Greg Ripley was born in Montreal and spent his first five years in five different countries. He lost track of how many jobs he’s had (somewhere over thirty) but along the way he has worked as a barista in Tennessee, an organic farmer in New Mexico, and an acupuncturist in Minnesota. Greg studied Chinese religions at the University of Tennessee and Acupuncture and Chinese medicine at NWHSU. He discovered his love of writing while practicing acupuncture, when he wrote several non-fiction titles to help his people enjoy better health through a deeper connection with nature, including Tao of Sustainability and Primal Energy. Greg lives in Minnesota with his wife, daughters, and two huskies, where he writes, gardens, and spends time in nature.
