About the Author

David Schachne fell in love with the great outdoors at an early age, while growing up in Brooklyn. An avid hiker and fitness enthusiast, he began writing in his mid-twenties, while earning his Masters degree at Harvard Business School. He always had a strong desire to write - about anything - but instead focused on his business career for over twenty years, spending most of his time writing business proposals instead of manuscripts. After 9/11, he decided to pursue his passion and started writing more extensively, combining it with his passion for hiking. He has hiked in many places around the world and has reached the summits of some of the tallest mountains in the U.S. and elsewhere. He has served on the boards of two successful businesses, as well as Make-a-Wish of CT. He resides in Connecticut with his wife and three daughters.
