As relatives in my native Iowa might say, “Howdy!” I am a full-time writer, part-time musician, and occasional chicken dancer. My other titles include husband, dad, grandpa and master of my dog—sometimes. I live in an area of Wisconsin best known for cheese, Bucky Badger– and maybe someday– me!
I’ve written several books for young people. My favorites include biographies of musical titans John Lennon and Ray Charles, plus biographies of two tremendous artists, Grant Wood and Jacob Lawrence. I’ve also written business material for adults since the Stone Age, and magazine articles since the Jurassic Era.
For answers to questions I’m asked most frequently such as, “Did you always want to
be an author?” and “Why do you chicken dance?” check my bio. If you’d like to know something I haven’t mentioned, share a good joke or just say, “Howdy!” drop an e-note to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Are you the John Duggleby that use to write the UTLX newsletter?
If so, provide me your phone number. And…what the heck is a “chicken dancer”???
Guilty as charged, I’m afraid. I don’t think many others would want to be me 🙂 Great to hear from you, you can reach me at 608-838-7834, email@example.com When we catch up, I’ll explain the chicken dance.
I work for Catholic Charities adult day center. I saw and advertisement in the paper about you performing at the Oregon senior center. I was wondering if you could play for us on May 20th at 1:00? Please call 608-663-7117 ext. 106 so we can make arrangements for you to come or so we can find another artist.
Do you have another email or form of contact? Your current email “firstname.lastname@example.org” does not work.

Hi John ,I work at KANDU industries in Janesville WI and we have four adult day centers.Two for devopmently disabled and two for the elderly. We are a non-profit organization so cost for entertainment can be an issue. I would be interested in what it would cost to have you perform for us. Please e-mail me and let me know. Thanks, Rene
P.S. I read about you in Our Wisconsin
Please contact me about a performance in Rochester, MN. Thank you.
I’m sorry, but for some reason your note JUST showed up on my website. I’ve entertained in Minnesota before, and always enjoy it. If you let me know something about the venue, (school, library, senior facility,festival, etc.) I can email you a flyer with appropriate programs for you.
Thanks for your interest!
