Overview

The Snowflake Rebellion is a novel about the ultimate Alaska tea party - a satirical thriller about political rebellion gone wild. A young couple moves to Alaska from the East. Deeply in love, Colin and Sheila Callihan take opposing paths, he an oil company geologist, she an environmental activist. He discovers a vast oil reservoir on the North Slope; she becomes his most vocal critic.
Governor Jimmy Pender asks Colin to join the Alaskan Independence Party and bring it under control. The party’s increasingly militant members are creating a political firestorm. The state rebels against decisions made in Washington and economic control by outsiders. Colin leads the rebels’ insurrection.
After 50 years as a state, might Alaska go its own way? Author Tom Brennan explores the possibility in his unique novel The Snowflake Rebellion. In this semi-serious look at what might have been — and what lies ahead — Brennan writes the history of Alaska as it would look if a few events had played out differently.

Meet the Author

Tom Brennan is a journalist, author and longtime resident of Anchorage, Alaska. He is the author of four books, a thriller about Alaska seceding from the union, a book of Alaska humor and two true-crime books.

He was previously a reporter at The Worcester, Mass., Telegram for seven years and came to Alaska in 1967 to work for The Anchorage Times. He worked there two years before going to work for ARCO shortly after the oil discovery, continuing there for 11 years as manager of public relations.

He served in management at ARCO through construction of the trans-Alaska pipeline and left in 1980 to form a consulting company. He later spent 18 months at Alyeska Pipeline Service Co. and was a member of the initial response team for the Exxon Valdez disaster. He returned to journalism as an editorial writer/columnist for The Voice of The Times in 2000. He writes a weekly column for The Anchorage Daily Planet.

His first book was published in 2000 and he is currently working on his fifth, a true-crime work about former strip club dancer and suburban doctor's wife and mom, Mechele Linehan, currently facing retrial after an earlier conviction and sentence of 99 years in the murder of her former fiance.

Books: The Snowflake Rebellion, Murder at 40 Below, Cold Crime and Moose Dropping & Other Crimes Against Nature.
