Donald R. Underhill was born and raised in Connecticut. He and his wife, Pam, have two children and three grandchildren. They emigrated to Florida in 1991 and share their home with two cats and a large collection of frog figurines. Donald has been a house husband for nearly twenty years while working, full and part time, in a variety of jobs in the restaurant industry, mainly as a cook, both in Connecticut and Florida.

His curiosity, which led him to writing this book, also led him and his wife to travel extensively in the Caribbean where they started their frog collection.
