Anthony J. Kohler

My career has included insurance sales, collections and law, which I did in Denver for about ten years before I retired. I was never into the Colorado winters and skiing always seemed like nothing more than a waste of time and money. This is heresy in Colorado, of course, so when I retired, I headed south for a warmer climate. I now live in the outskirts of Tucson, in the heart of the Sonoran desert, and I can honestly say that my heart goes where the saguaro grows. I happily grow many kinds of cactus in my garden, and here in the desert, I learned the hard way that gardening can be a blood sport.

My degrees are all from the University of Colorado, and I was there during the time frame of "Repeat." I write from experience, and there is so much more that I could have included. Light shows, concerts, winter storms and chinook winds, the trees leafing out late in the Spring semester – there are myriad things that could have been included to make the setting even more real, but doing so, while it would have been true to memory, would, I felt, have resulted in the setting taking over the story.

Currently I live on the outskirts of Tucson with a partner of the opposite sex and a long-coat Akita, also of the opposite sex.
