A lifelong native of the Guadalupe River Delta on the Texas Gulf Coast, Larry Landgraf worked first as a commercial fisherman, then as a general contractor before severe injury led to his career as an author. He wrote one book before Smart SOB, then followed those with his epic Four Seasons series. The father of three grown children, Larry brought his beloved city-gal Ellen to the Delta in 2009. Now he teaches her the ways of his swamp, and she teaches him more than he ever imagined.
