2010 Book Festival Author
Mike Dauplaise

Author Biography

Mike Dauplaise is a freelance writer who began his career in 1979 as a reporter for the Green Bay (Wis.) Press-Gazette. He currently specializes in article, brochure and video script writing for a variety of corporate, educational and health care industry clients across the United States.

In researching his new true crime book, Torture at the Back Forty, Dauplaise left virtually no stone unturned in his quest to tell the complete story of Margaret Anderson and the events surrounding her grisly murder during the Christmas holiday of 1983. In addition to spending hundreds of hours poring through police and court records, he interviewed approximately 40 people in an exhaustive effort to cover all sides of the story. His interview subjects included Margaret’s family and friends in her native northeastern Montana, and individuals in the law enforcement and motorcycle club communities.

Torture at the Back Forty is Dauplaise’s second book. His first work came as co-author of Bodyguard to the Packers with long-time Green Bay Packers security director and former Green Bay Police detective Jerry Parins.

Dauplaise is a Green Bay native and graduate of St. Norbert College in De Pere, Wis. He and his wife, Bonnie Groessl, live in Green Bay, where he enjoys running and golf when not at his computer.
