Colin and wife, Carson, met in college in the mid 1990's. Both creatives at heart, their early years together found Carson doing oil paintings and Colin founding and playing in a band. They decided to pool their talents and create an illustrated novel. They got busy with illustrating and with the band, though, and the novel languished for ten years.
They moved to a heavily wooded area outside Portland, Oregon, and began navigating the many trails. The forest re-ignited their desire and imagination for the novel, and the Wildwood Chronicles was the result. Read the books to learn about the Impassable Wilderness and the adventures awaiting Prue McKeel. The third book in the series, Wildwood Imperium is being released in early 2014.
