William P. Young Book and Novel

William P. Young - Author


William P Young was born in Canada and raised until the age of six by his missionary parents in Netherlands New Guinea, (West Papua), amongst the Dani, a technologically stone age tribal people. They became his family and as the first white child and outsider who ever spoke their language he was welcomed into their culture and community. He then returned to the West and after attending thirteen different schools, he paid his way through college with a series of jobs including being a disc jockey and a lifeguard. He now works as a general manager, janitor and inside sales guy for a friend who owns a small manufacturers rep company. He lives in Oregon, USA with his wife and six children. He has extensively written for business, but had no thought or intention of becoming an ‘author’. THE SHACK is his first book.
