Bill Simmons served as a Baptist minister in the United Kingdom for sixteen years before learning that rather than trying to escape the world, he should embrace it. He's worked as a youth officer for the London Youth Service, a teacher in higher education, and a community development consultant and trainer. He has been married to a wonderful Hoosier lady for twenty-three years and has spent the last fifteen years working as a mental health worker in a group home for problematic kids.
