Walter was not always a writer, but his love of adventure novels began when he was very young.
He was born with a deep and profound love of nature. His mother rocked his cradle, but Mother Nature rocked his mind. Although he was raised in a large metropolitan city, at every every opportunity he would venture off exploring mountains, lakes, oceans and islands in a never ending quest for new discoveries.
Rouzer studied environmental resources and social work in college. Before becoming a writer he wanted to be a naturalist and a social worker. While in college he took classes in plant, soil, animal husbandry and other bio-earth sciences as well as studies in the field of sociology. He had fond memories tutoring inner-city kids as part of his off campus training. It was a fulfilling experience having the opportunity to make a positive difference in kid's lives.
