About the Author
Rocky, the real-life Ricky, was born and raised in the rural area between the two small towns of Poland and Lowellville, in northeastern Ohio. After high school, he graduated with a bachelor’s degree in science from Marietta College, which is located in southern Ohio. He then went to work on his post-baccalaureate degree in the field of cardiovascular perfusion in Cincinnati, Ohio. He now lives with his wife in Michigan, where they both work for the University of Michigan Health Systems.

Rocky is employed as a Cardiovascular Perfusionist where he operates the heart-lung machine life support systems and artificial heart devices both at the adult and children’s hospitals. Rocky still likes to wander about the old barn and junkyard now and then, especially with his nieces and nephews, while visiting his family. To this day, if you listen closely enough, he says you can still hear the distant echoes of Shep’s bark through the old junkyard and surrounding woods.
