Cole Conlin has been playing or coaching hockey for most of his life. While working part-time as a Zamboni machine driver at Belmont Hill School in Massachusetts, he noticed how many people chose to stay in the cold rink to watch the odd, lovable machine clean the ice and was inspired to write this book. In addition to driving a Zamboni machine, Cole has taught and coached hockey at Cardigan Mountain School, Tabor Academy, Belmont Hill School, and Kimball Union Academy. He currently lives with his family in Minneapolis, MN.
