July 2018: Minneopa Valley Press, Inc. is pleased to announce the acquisition of THE WORLD OF NORTHERN MEN: The Collected Works of Timo Juhani Koskinen, to be released in the Spring of 2019.

Timo was born in Pietarsaari, Finland. At the age of four, he was sent to America where he was adopted and raised in the Upper Peninsula (the UP) of Michigan and in West Palm, Florida. During his adult life he worked in logging and construction, received a masters degree from Colorado State University, and then taught writing and English for over 40 years, most recently at Finlandia University.

His novella, “Bone Soup and A Lapland Wizard” was published in 2012 by Lynx House Press, and he received praise for his short story “Deadweight”.

Now, semi retired, he spends his time writing, watching the land, cutting firewood and walking his blood hounds around his property in the UP of Michigan.
