Ted Persinger was born and raised in Sacramento, California. At the ripe old age of 20, and after a (failed) career in music, he joined the US Air Force for a four-year hitch. Twenty-four years later, he retired in the rank of Lieutenant Colonel, having served in locations including Alaska, Germany, Alabama, North Carolina, and Texas. He is a board certified healthcare executive, and a Fellow in the American College of Healthcare Executives (FACHE).

After a bit of time in the private sector, he found himself needing change. As his children were out of the home, he took a (planned one-year) sabbatical from his private sector career, and began teaching English. This turned into a career. He graduated TeacherReady in 2010. He has taught in international schools in both Thailand and Morocco, including stints as High School Language Arts Team Leader and Head of English. He has taught all high school grades, including AP English Language and Composition. He earned certification in the States of Florida, California, Nevada, Texas, Oklahoma, and Virginia. He returned to the US in 2013, and is currently teaching high school in Las Vegas. Through the years, he has been an Adjunct with Wayland Baptist University, the University of Phoenix, and Kaplan University. He has published four novels, all available on Amazon.com. He has a wonderfully forgiving wife, three adult children, and two grandchildren.
