Lisbet “Bet” Lindstrom is the 13-year-old daughter of a sea captain convicted of theft and sent to prison. Bet is convinced her father is innocent, but she has no way to prove it. Desperate to free her father, she visits his old fishing boat, and spots a horribly scarred sailor who might know the truth about the crime. Ignoring the warnings of her friends, she secretly jumps aboard the ship and sails to Alaska. She braves huge storms, performs daring rescues, and faces the man who threatens everything she loves.

About the Author
I've loved science fiction ever since I wrote my first Star Trek fanfic story at age 12. Now, I'm pursuing my dream of writing science fiction novels, but with a modern emphasis on our planet's changing climate. I'm working on a series of novels titled Carbon Run, Restoration, and Antarctica 2261. I hope to publish these by 2017.
I've already published a young adult novel, titled Bet: Stowaway Daughter, based on my research into the history of the schooner Wawona. I've told the ship's story in Shipbuilders, Sea Captains, and Fishermen: The Story of the Schooner Wawona, and the ebook Blowing Out the Stink: Life on a Lumber and Cod Schooner 1897-1947.
My interest in maritime history spurred me to publish two travel guides: The Fyddeye Guide to America's Maritime History, and The Fyddeye Guide to America's Lighthouses. I've also written three books on streaming media.
I live in Seattle with my wife, a chicken, and a weakness for anything with too much sugar.
