Biographical and Professional Information

Eric Wentz was born in a small town in southern Pennsylvania where as a boy he learned to hunt, fish, and read, both the written word and the signs of nature. His growing up years as the son of a Naval officer found him living all over until the family settled in Ohio, where he attended the Jesuit College Preparatory high school, St. Ignatius. There he engaged in athletics and learned to love the quest for knowledge, a quest nurtured by the Jesuits who play such a prominent role in his novel. He then taught and coached in the Cincinnati area before attending Ohio State University where he obtained a master's degree in applied linguistics and Italian.

Eric Wentz has devoted over 25 years to teaching high school English and Social Studies, receiving various teaching awards including one from the Department of Commerce and several from the Defense Department. Additionally, Wentz has coached high school wrestling, baseball, track and cross-country.
