Larry Farmer was born and raised in Harlingen on the border with Mexico on the southern tip of Texas, near the Gulf of Mexico. He was raised with old school values on a cotton farm. After high school he went to Texas A&M and was in the Corps of Cadets there. He quit in the middle of his senior year to join the Marines in the hope of going to Vietnam. He also served in the Peace Corps in The Philippines. He travelled around the world between these two events in his life and saw enough to need to relate it. He worked for eleven years in Switzerland. He married there and raised two of his three children there. He now works for Texas A&M. And finally has time to reflect on his life and its meaning. And write about it.
I Will Be The One is a historical fiction novel about being in the Peace Corps in the Philippines when Marcos was overthrown in 1986 during the People Power Revolution. My Journey into the Oncoming Holocaust is a self-published novel about a Texas girl who moves with her Shiite husband to Lebanon just in time for the Arab Spring. Both of these novels are based on true events. Mr. Farmer’s newest book Seeing Gail Again is currently being edited.
The Bryan+College Station Public Library System currently carries two of his books.
