About the Author

Jake Orlo is a free spirit who makes his home in western Montana where he regularly enjoys many outdoor activities with his faithful companion Daisy, his border collie. When asked what he does for a living, he likes to joke that he's a fly-fisherman, hiker, traveler, and sometimes-writer.

Quips aside, this avid outdoorsman and maverick author has been writing fiction for most of his adult life, primarily as a hobby that came second to his career in computers. Orlo left the world of computers and corporate life some years ago to devote most of his time to his storytelling and he hasn't looked back since.

"Bittersweet in the Bitterroot" is Orlo's third full-length novel, which he was inspired to write when curiosity, fear, and his active imagination caused him to wonder what would happen if he discovered something sinister while hiking.
