A Bit About Me
Earl L. Goldmann launched his first memoir Bounce Back in 2017 at age 82. Born and raised in Tillamook, on the Oregon Coast, he now resides in Scottsdale where he wrote his second memoir entitled Intestinal Fortitude. This one was just released in May, 2022.
He taught history and government at Canby and Estacada high schools in Oregon while coaching girl’s golf, boy’s track, and basketball for over 25 years. Earl also sold textbooks, managed a golf course, and owned a bar/restaurant before retirement in Oregon and his move to Arizona.
He played basketball and baseball at Oregon State University in the 1950s, only to lose his scholarships due to a horrific car wreck. After a lengthy recovery, he earned two degrees from Portland State University, including a master’s degree in education.
Earl and his wife Patricia L. Brooks, also an author and his partner in their publishing company, have been together over twenty years. They author books, consult with other authors and enjoy an active writing lifestyle. They reside in Old Town Scottsdale and support the art and music scene in the Phoenix area.
