Michael Perry is a New York Times bestselling author, humorist, singer/songwriter, and self-professed amateur pig farmer. It's a different path than he may have thought he would take when he graduated from UW-Eau Claire with a nursing degree in 1987. But as he tells us, what he learned in nursing college, combined with a love for writing he discovered in a creative writing class, made him realize he could be a healer AND a humorist.
