Author, humorist, ukulele player and snappy dresser, Mike Redmond has spent the last 35 years writing about life in Indiana while trying to figure out what he wants to do when he grows up.

A native of Peru – the one in Miami County, not the one in South America – he was raised in Indianapolis and Washington, D.C. before the family settled in the place he considers home: LaGrange County, land of natural lakes, Amish people and his Mom’s flock of chickens and guinea fowl.

His stories have appeared in his award-winning newspaper column and in two books: Six Of One, Half-Dozen of Another and The Night The Wheels Fell Off. He has been a commentator for CBS News, is a frequent contributor to magazines and newspapers around the state, and is a popular speaker for audiences ranging from Fortune 500 companies to his mother’s extension homemakers club.

Although he has a wall full of professional awards, his proudest achievement came in 1963 when he was named first-runner up in the Cub Scout Pack 132 Halloween Costume Contest.

Fans of Mike's writing can let him know by contacting him at mike@mikeredmondonline.com.
