Eddie Salas was born in southwest Texas in 1970. In his youth Eddie and his family would spend much of their summers camping out in The Lincoln National Forest. He remembers one night in particular that was a very stormy and scary night as lightning flashes filled the sky and created dark silhouettes of the tall pine trees. That night became the inspiration for this book. Eddie now lives in Southern California with his wife and two sons. He has been a background actor in motion pictures in his spare time ,and he also enjoys oil painting and writing books. This is Eddie Salas's third published book ,but it is his first work of fiction. He continues to work on a fourth and fifth book due out in the not too distant future both of which will be fiction as well.
