Biographical and Professional Information
Dave Norman is a world traveller and widely published author who was born and raised in down-state Illinois. He visited 20 countries and 48 states before turning thirty, and has enjoyed the honor and privilege of writing about many of them for newspapers, magazines, and websites. His books include the travelogue-come-memoir "Following Josh," chronicling the adventures he had with a friend from his youth as they rode the Trans Mongolian and Trans Siberian railroads from Beijing to Warsaw, Poland. His other books include "White River Junctions," a look at the history and people of a mountain village in Vermont, "A Small Town Celebration" which combines Dave's photography and writing in homage to his hometown of Columbia Illinois, and "501 Paintball Tips," because everyone has to start somewhere. An eager public speaker, he has toured the St Louis metropolitan area to promote his work and literacy in general, and has enjoyed book talks in several other states and countries.
