Alan John Mayer was born in Casablanca, Morocco, as an American citizen. As a child dependent of his United States Department of Defense parents, he found himself surrounded by constant change. By high school, he had attended eleven schools, in seven countries, on four continents.
From eleven to fifteen, he held a morning paper route, and an afternoon lawn care service. At fifteen, he found himself thrust into a series of ‘foster’ homes, the fourth in the heart of Europe’s coal mining country, Germany’s industrial Ruhr Valley. He got on a train to his favorite aunt’s house in the country. Not knowing what to do with a fifteen year-old boy, she arranged for him to visit friends of hers who had emigrated to European capitals, on his savings in the States.
In 1978, he moved to Southern California, and began a daily journal. He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Theater and Television Production from the University of California, Irvine, a K through Adult multi-lingual Teaching Credential from the University of California, (both with honors,) and an M.A. in Childhood Development from the University of Life, in Forgiveness.
