About the Author
Against a medical advice Kent Elliott can be found carrying a mug of black coffee nearly everywhere. His theory, and it is his alone, is that by alternating between lifting the mug to his face and pushing the computer mouse around the pad, he is preventing carpal tunnel syndrome. Kent took up a serious habit of story writing as a retirement hobby. With some small but happy success and with appreciative readers he’s unable to quit.
Elliott is a retired minister who has held pastorates in the United Church of Christ in eastern Montana, and in the United Methodist Church in Montana and Wyoming. He and wife Barb have three grown daughters and seven (soon eight) grandchildren. They make their home near Boulder -- a small town in southwestern Montana.
Kent’s first two novels are set (mostly) in a familiar part of the world that he moved away from when opportunity arose to return to the mountains. It’s Not About You, Wally, his third novel, goes to places he’s never been, with characters who do some things he’s never done. And yet, these folks in their fictional settings and situations take us on a quest that will be familiar to many. Kent maintains that just because he’s never been to Port Hardy, he has been to the end of a highway and has not completely abandoned the dictum: "Write what you know."
