Dean McFalls’ journey began in Seattle, where he and four siblings were raised in the Congregational Church UCC. During graduate studies in theology, Dean joined the Catholic Church. He has served over the years in elementary and high school education, in the missions, in international initiatives for justice and peace, as a writer, and for twenty years as a Roman Catholic priest. He now resides in Stockton, California, with his wife and their son. This is his first book; he hopes that many will follow.
