Chad Clabo is an independent author from Minneapolis who visits Texas whenever he can. He enjoys sopapillas and hopes to someday attend the Hatch Green Chili Festival.

Chad has dug post holes in the panhandle, battled tumbleweeds on the plains, and watched the sun set over fields of cotton. He knows the secrets to making excellent King Ranch Chicken and Lefse.

When he’s not writing, Chad engages in bicycle riding around the lakes of Minneapolis, weather permitting, and speculates on the potential for happiness when Lubbock Texas is in the rear view mirror.
