Short biography
Raised on the ancient hunting grounds of the Mescalero Apaches, Luke Montgomery cut his teeth on tales of Geronimo’s exploits, supped with Viking heroes in Valhalla and embarked on exhilarating voyages with Odysseus. Somewhere along the way, he grew older, but he didn't grow up. After obtaining his MA in Linguistics, he set a course for adventure in Europe and the Middle East, where he lived for over a decade combing Hittite, Phrygian, Lycian, Greek and Roman ruins on the shores of the Mediterranean and Aegean. An inquisitive anthropologist and history buff, Mr. Montgomery immersed himself in the local culture, mastering both the language and customs of the people. He has sipped tea with the sons of Ottoman sultans, explored the Taurus Mountains with Turcoman tribes, listened to haunting Kurdish folk songs and watched the sun rise in Aman with the Arabic call to prayer floating over the desert sand. When he is not consulting private and public institutions with interests and operations in the Middle East, he tends grapes, raises Longhorn cattle and researches political developments. As an expert on Islam, he spends much of his time researching and writing about religious politics. Some of the people and works that have shaped his worldview are Emily Dickinson, Rudyard Kipling, Atlas Shrugged, C.S. Lewis, Anton Chekhov, Omar Khayyam, LOTR, the Torah, O. Henry, The Ballad of the White Horse, Bruce Cockburn, George Orwell, Yaşar Kemal, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Vince Flynn, Yeshua...
