Mike Dauplaise

Mike Dauplaise has been a professional writer for more than forty years. His background as an investigative newspaper reporter provided the skills needed to research his true crime book, “Torture at the Back Forty.” While proud of that effort, he has more fun today writing destination guidebooks such as “Golf in Eastern Wisconsin” and “Kauai Travel Tips.”

Mike Dauplaise author

Mike Dauplaise is a freelance writer and author who began his career in 1979 as a sports reporter for the Green Bay (Wis.) Press-Gazette. He specializes in article, brochure, website and video script writing for a variety of corporate, educational and health care industry clients across the United States.

Mike is a Green Bay native and graduate of St. Norbert College in De Pere, Wis. He and his wife, Bonnie, live in Green Bay, where he enjoys running and golf when not at his computer.

The true story of the pool table rape and murder of Margaret Anderson in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Left for dead, practically beheaded in a manure pile, Margaret fights for life. But in the end, the single mother leaves behind a son.

Author Mike Dauplaise practically makes Margaret blow a breath at readers as he recreates the night she was killed. He then takes readers to the place she was trying to escape back to, her home state of Montana, and finally, on the investigative hunt of a lifetime as this “America’s Most Wanted” drama ends with the capture of the last of the suspects five years later.

Dauplaise infiltrates the motorcycle club culture of the 1980s to expose what happened to Anderson and why she was just six months away from returning home to Montana. True-crime enthusiasts will revel in the detail and the hunt.
