Don Flanagan was born in New York City, went to college in Washington, D.C., moved to Minnesota for graduate school, met his wife in Romantic Poetry, and taught English at several local colleges. Then he changed paths, working in advertising and public relations. Along the way, after a very long time, he rediscovered his Catholic faith and went on three Irish pilgrimages to Chartres.
