Having lived in Ten American States and four foreign countries, including eight years in Australia, Hale has a deep well of experience from which to form the fabric of his writing. Among the topics which are of most interest to him are racism in all its forms, individual courage in the face of great obstacles, romantic love, parenting, politics, and the themes of the Bible. Most of his novels and biographies involve these areas.
Hale and his wife Sue will celebrate 23 years of marriage in 2011. They have two grown sons, one of whom is married.
As a Christian, Hale delights in relating the message of the gospel of Jesus Christ in tales of real people who believe, live, and die in the faith. As an American patriot, he is a champion of the vision of the Founding Fathers.
The author of eight novels, two novelettes, one biography, and numerous short stories and poems, Hale’s current project is a sweeping Michener-style novel of the history of the great state of Minnesota.
