Grady Birdsong, the son of an oil field roughneck, driller, tool pusher, pumper and a homemaker mother, was raised on the small town values of "God, Mother, Country, and Apple Pie," in that order. He grew up in central and southwest Kansas (Hoisington and Meade) attending Southwestern College in Winfield, Kansas, before enlisting in the Marine Corps in 1966. After two tours in Northern I Corps of Vietnam, he returned to Denver and finished his formal education at Regis University, Denver, Colorado. During his actual education, he traveled the globe, enjoying a successful career in marketing and business development in the telecommunications, data, and cable/fiber-optic systems arena. Now retired, Grady lives with his wife, Pamela, in the Denver area, where he enjoys his grandchildren and spends time writing, "puttering," and hunting big game.
