About the Author

Alaska is my home, and the focus of my work, but I had the good fortune to be raised by parents who loved adventure, and they spent a lifetime traveling and exploring from California to Europe, from Arizona to Alaska. In my 35 years of writing and publishing I've been fortunate to continue the travels and explorations my parents began so long ago, and simply living and learning has given me a perspective and an appreciation which cannot be won any other way.
