In Case You Care
Joe Pelanconi was born and raised in the wine country of Sonoma County,
California, as was his wife, Sue. He went to college, avoided Vietnam , loved baseball and turned out semi-normal.
He never intended to be a writer; he just always wrote a lot. He has written for professional journals, a school newspaper
column and other stuff that has long since disappeared.
For years, he and Sue lived in Tehama County, California, where they
raised two daughters. Joe never intended to be a school administrator either, but was a high school principal
for 29 years. A leader in international school exchanges, Joe and his family have travelled overseas numerous times.
Joe has been called visionary, witty, obnoxious, politically incorrect,
compassionate and many other things. It is all true and he is proud to have lived to write about it in retirement.
Some say Joe is also a talented speaker and his grandchildren say he is a great nonno.
Joe and Sue have returned to Sonoma County and once
again live in Geyserville.
