Quant a miI fell in love with the written word when I was five and my mother first read Danny and the Dinosaur to me, a book that I have always believed must have been written especially for me. Since then I have earned a BA in English from the University of California at Berkeley and an MA in English from the University of California at Los Angeles, in both of which places I read many great works, some even rivaling Danny and the Dinosaur. I have taught writing at San Jose State University and Stanford University and worked as a technical editor and instructional designer at Microsoft. I now live in the country east of Redmond, Washington, where I write nonfiction books about compelling historical events.

My newest book, coming soon from Viking Press and other publishers around the world, is THE BOYS IN THE BOAT: NINE AMERICANS AND THEIR EPIC QUEST FOR GOLD AT THE 1936 BERLIN OLYMPICS. It chronicles the extraordinary saga of nine working class boys who stormed the rowing world, transformed the sport, and inspired millions of Americans in the midst of the Great Depression. The Weinstein Company has optioned the rights to the book for a major feature film.

My previous book is THE INDIFFERENT STARS ABOVE: THE HARROWING SAGA OF A DONNER PARTY BRIDE, which recounts the journey of a young woman whose fate became entangled with that of the infamous Donner Party in 1846. The book won rave reviews and was a finalist for the Washington State Book Award. My earlier book, UNDER A FLAMING SKY; THE GREAT HINCKLEY FIRESTORM OF 1894, takes the reader back to the events of September 1, 1894, when my great-grandfather and more than 300 other people died in one of America's greatest forest-fire disasters. That book was selected as a Barnes and Noble Discover Great New Writers pick, was named one of the Best Books of 2006 by Booklist magazine, and was a finalist for the Washington State Book Award.
