Lyle Olsen is the author of Thought Soup
Lyle Olsen taught elementary students for twelve years before committing to writing for youngsters. He self-published two Books for Young Illustrators and sold a small story to R.C. Owen Publishers, but his success as a writer will come courtesy of the e-book revolution. He lives off-grid in the woods of Montana with his wife, Helen, and dogs, Molly and Gus.
His dogs get him into the woods twice on a good day, hiking, skiing, or biking. Summers he works in the Montana mountains for the Forest Service. In long winters Lyle spends much of his time as a word and wood crafter.
