KenLogoColour.pngMy name is Ken Decroo. I am a writer and an adventurer, and I’ve been wandering the Baja peninsula for over fifty years. I keep coming back to this land and its people as though she was a mistress. She has the unique ability of reclaiming herself and keeping the core of her character. She has been a centering, constant force for me in this high-speed, plugged-in world. Baja is where I go to unplug and write.

  1. Hiya, I am just about to press publish (!) and nominate you for the Liebster Award. I have really enjoyed seeing your adventures so far, long may they continue 🙂

  2. I am really enjoying your blog, Ken. You don’t seem quite so far away now. I have a few pages to send you; could you send me your email at rachellpohlman@gmail.com? Hugs always to you and Tammy. Lori

  3. Oh, P.S.- I have an interview coming up at the local library, and I used you as a reference. Hope that’s ok! I need to get back into a room full of books!

  4. Hey, Ken! Have you checked out this possibility?? What d’ya think? http://allianceindependentauthors.org/ And have a great weekend signing books!!

    • This looks interesting. I just contacted them. Their blog has some very useful information. I many join. Have you?

      • Not yet, but I just found them and I’m trying to convince my husband that he needs to also look into it. Thought you might be interested in checking it out.

    • Baja Moto Quest!

      I joined and have used several of their resources. It was through them that AIA picked up my books to publish.

    Would like to follow your blog. Can you add me to your list?

  6. When it’s your home
    That’s all that matters to you
    I hope you can with others keep it that way

  7. Just found your blog via Sue Vincent’s. Love it! Is that a BMW GS you have? I had one ten years ago (1100 cc) and am thinking of returning to biking with one, again. Perfect vehicle for Baja, I would think?

    Hi Ken,
    Frank here, the Air Force veteran who exchanged war stories with you in your office at MPH.. I’m working on getting my Mexican citizenship with intentions on spending time there when I retire in five years. i miss my childhood experiences when I lived in Guadalajara as a kid. I have family for which I have not connected with in many years.. Many of them have made names for themselves, but I’m not really interested in that. I just want to see them again after many, many years.Funny how life makes a circle compelling us (me) to reach out to visit them.

    If you get a chance, look up Francisco Zinser. I use to play with when I was a kid. Now he’s doing well in Madrid Spain. That doe snot bode well with me as his life makes it difficulty for me to reach him.

    But your experiences in Baja makes me envious.Keep traveling and enjoying good life after making your own impact.


    • Baja Moto Quest!

      Good to hear from you Frank. Let’s get together and I will walk you through the steps in getting premenent residency in Mexico. Warm regards!

    Hi, Ken. I am very happy to hear about the success of your books. I am just curious to know if there is any mention of Fritz in the books since I am not familiar with your writing? Is it something that I would relate to based on the stories I have heard in the past or more of your own personal stories? Thank you, and much continued happiness as you and Tammy keep searching out the many wonders of Baja, MX.

    • Baja Moto Quest!

      Great to hear from you, Nina. The Almost Human Series is fiction and draws on my time as a wild animal trainer and researcher in the world of motion pictures and universities. I am planning a novel that will be set in Mexico and, of course, I will have a character based on our dad. Fritz was and is my best friend and was bigger than life. I hope all is well you guys. Warm regards, Ken
