Cory Ellsworth, an Arizona dairy boy at heart, has lived in five countries and visited forty more. He enjoyed a thirty-year career in the high-tech industry, driving global projects for AT&T and Cisco Systems. Left-handed and left-brained, Cory finally got in touch with his right brain later in life. Since then he has written and produced two stage Musicals and has published six books with three more currently in progress. His published books include: The First Fifty: Lessons Learned in a Half Century of Living, Chegamos!, and the four books of The Sieger Chronicles Series (Traditions of Their Fathers, Management of the Creature, A Dark and Hellish Hue, and The Justice of an Offended God). His musicals are titled: 1856 The Musical, and Crosses: A Musical of Hope.
Loss (Cory and his wife, Amy, have lost sons to accident and disease) and how to cope with it is a theme and passion in Cory’s life. He just sold his beloved milk cow after having fulfilled the desire to get back in touch with his rural roots. He is a husband, dad and grandpa, a biographer and writer of fiction and non-fiction, and an avid hiker.
