Mitch Wilde never believed in aliens—that is, until he was left with no other way to explain the strange events happening around his small Pacific Northwest home. With scattered appearances of ghostly Native American riders, a series of odd break-ins by unknown intruders, and hints that more could be coming, Mitch, along with his cantankerous old neighbor who is becoming a new friend, vows to unravel the mysteries and preserve the comfortable life he has worked so hard to build.
When an unexplained attack leaves his long-time best friend acting quite unlike himself, Mitch knows he has to act or risk losing everything. The only question is: Does he have what it takes to conquer the mysterious, powerful force once and for all? The Outlaw River Wilde weaves a tale of intrigue and adventure guaranteed to keep you guessing until the very last page.
Author Bio: Mike Walters’ debut duology, The Outlaw River Wilde – Book I, and Still Wilde in Outlaw River – Book II, sprung from an idea while watching Ancient Aliens on the History channel. He intertwines his love of Native American culture and a passion for the Pacific Northwest, primarily his birth state of Oregon in the Supernatural SciFi Mystery. Mike sat down one day and started writing. The characters and story came to life as he wrote.
“Every session was as if I were reading something new myself for the first time. It was great fun seeing what happened. I challenged myself by taking thoughts I have had over the years watching Ancient Aliens, as well as my love of Native American culture and my experience with all the time I spent in the outdoors of the Pacific Northwest. Bringing these ideas together in a novel was more fun than I ever imagined.”
Mike is the Director of Marketing & Product at a Library Software company, Auto-Graphics, Inc. based in Ontario, California. When Mike isn’t working, he can be found bicycling around Southern California, hiking the Claremont Loop, or writing.
“I am fortunate to work in an industry that has a meaningful impact on society. It makes going to work each day rewarding. Some of my fondest memories as a child were spent in a small rural library in the town of Bonanza, OR. We used to walk, single file, led by the teacher once a week to this tiny little library. It was an absolute magical place. My favorite author as a child was Jack London. I also had an affinity for My Side of the Mountain by Jean Craighead George. I would often dream of being alone, like the main character in the book, having to survive in the outdoors on your own.”
Mike learned photography as a freshman in high school and later took the passion and used it as a photographer in the United States Air Force. Besides his hiking and bicycling passion, Mike has a penchant for capturing sunrises on his Blackberry, which he often shares on Facebook and Instagram. Mike has a fondness for Micro-brews, particularly Porters and Stouts. One can frequently find him sampling, with his son Alexander, at Claremont Craft Ales, a personal favorite. Mike is currently at work on his next yarn, What Lies Beneath the Ferns — a dark mystery dealing with abduction, childhood abuse, and a family that wants to wish it all away. As time permits, which seems to never be enough, he continues to market his supernatural duology, The Outlaw River Wilde.
