Will Bontrager was raised Amish in Iowa and Wisconsin, USA. (There's lots to say about the Amish, but that's outside the scope of this particular bio. If interested, do a web search for "Old Order Amish".)
At almost 17 years of age, during year 1970, he left home to go to high school and experience the world outside the Amish community. He never returned to the Amish lifestyle.
His primary interests, other than interacting with people, are cooking, writing software, and writing both non-fiction and fiction.
Will's mom taught him many cooking tricks. And he has been cooking pretty much all of his adult life. Now he is writing about his experiences and publishing especially delicious recipes.
