About the Author

Rebecca Harrison is best known for her 2006 book Deep Dark and Dangerous: On the Bottom with the Northwest Salvage Divers. While she travels the world for a month each year sparking ideas for more works, she is currently writing a book about the steamer stern-wheeler Portland. Raised in Beaverton, she is a true Oregon native. Her husband, Daniel Cowan, is the go-to editor and technical support for her writing projects. His knowledge and passion for detail keep Rebecca’s books from becoming just a place to hold a coffee mug.
