One night I had a dream where sea level was in the mountain tops and I remember writing some ideas down that served as the basis for this book. While a business executive by day, I have spent many airline flights and hotel nights the past few years doing what I really enjoy: fiction writing. I also did on-site research for ALPINE TIDE in Colorado, where much of the story takes place.
I graduated from BYU with a bachelor’s degree in communications and a master’s degree in business administration. While in college, I really enjoyed my creative writing course and though someday I would love to write a novel.
However, I spent most of the last two decades working in retail real estate and franchising for several nationwide retailers/restaurants.
During my frequent business travel as a retail development executive, I wrote the bulk of Alpine Tide on airplanes and in hotel rooms. Because I wrote it in over 300 sessions in 20+ states, I went through three full edits to smooth out the story.
Alpine Tide is the first installment of my debut trilogy, the Second Moon Trilogy. The second installment, Rogue Watcher, is slated to be released in early 2023. The final installment, Falling Moon, will follow.
In addition to writing, I enjoy running, watching sports, serving in my church and community, and exploring National Parks. I live in the Pacific Northwest with my amazing wife and three great children-- and Toby, our COVID puppy.
Check out my blog for updates. More features coming soon on the website to interact with the Alpine Tide Universe and learn some "secrets" behind the book. Thank you for reading!
