Author Earl Trout has been working in mass media ever since he became a rock ‘n’ roll radio disk-jockey on his little home-town radio station at age 15. He had to walk to the studios because he was too young to drive.
His laugh-out-loud writing in high school and college newspaper columns translated well into broadcasting and he quickly became a successful major-market radio personality, followed by managing five major-market radio stations. About three dozen of his television scripts have been produced, he's written on assignment for major magazines, and his novel, Wild Blue, is based on a screenplay he wrote which came ---that close!--- to being produced with some very major movie stars.
Prior to retirement, Earl was Executive Director of the Kansas City Automotive Museum. He's been a guest lecturer at more than a dozen universities and colleges, holds a Church of the Nazarene local minister’s license, and loves road trips, playing golf, cards, and board games with his best friend, Dianne, who also happens to be his wife.
As a writer for all media, my articles have been published in many newspapers and magazines, including "Car and Driver" and "Motor Trend". I've sold 30+ television scripts, written and produced a score of commercials and infomercials, and optioned two motion picture scripts. And I sometimes send an amusing text to my wife.

Earl Trout novels combine mystery, romance and techno-thriller action with laugh aloud comedy and Reaganesque conservatism. (Imagine Ann Coulter starring in a Clive Cussler novel.)
Warning: Liberals may become annoyed.
Wild Blue: Saving the World with Duct Tape and WD-40 is the first in the series.
All hail breaks loose when a goof-off electronic genius accidentally creates a weather-controlling device and a religious cult seizes it for use as the ultimate weapon of mass destruction.
Wild Copper: Saving Humanity at the Masked Ball ... the second in the series.
After his lab explodes,
Dr. Weksler purchases an old
mansion whose bottled-up secrets

conscripts his reluctant buddies into a
Tesla-inspired plan to deliver cheap
energy world-wide, a dream not
shared by grease gangsters.
Wild Green: Honeymoon ... Episode three.
How did that extremely well-armed South American cartel sneak onto the Hawaiian cruise ship? And why are they speaking Farsi?
"I'm a big fan of Clive Cussler, Neil Simon, and James Michener. Not surprisingly, my writing style (to me, at least) reads like a combination of the three: Technology Action-Adventure that's interspersed with comedy and fictionalized (but true) history. Enjoy."
"I've been a car freak since I was old enough to notice that a Lincoln had been customized (age 5). Guess I had pretty good taste because if I still owned all those cars I owned as a young man, I'd be one rich dude!"
"Green" may be the last book in the "Wild" series for a while because Theo wants to tell you about his wacky desert road trip when a beautiful nutjob's car broke down on Theo's way back home from Las Vegas.
