Looking Up: A Memoir


by Ken Fernandez

Ken Fernandez grew up in the shade of the Redwoods and on the banks of the Noyo River of Northern California.  His family and friends set the foundation for a full life.  He eventually drives his way into Blise, Idaho where he met several characters, important mentors, and the love of his life.

Looking Up is a frank and engaging memoir that entertains and encourages the reader to push through the tough times, dream up the life you want, and take deliberate steps to create it.

Ken Fernandez was raised in California, but has made his home, family and name in Idaho.  As a retired entrepreneur in the field of construction, Ken has hardly slowed down.  He continues to stay involved in several businesses, writing projects, and business and financial coaching.  His biggest passion is “to help others find and fulfill their dreams.”  Now in his sixties, Ken is a fan of health and fitness, scuba diving, and world travel (all 50 states, all seven continents, and nearly 50 countries).  He and his wife Sherry live in Boise, Idaho and are the parents of six children and grandparents of 21 grandchildren.
