Westwinds by Nathan Baca

Westwinds is an autobiography that follows a group of six high school students as they grow lasting friendships and lingering emnities. This is more than the story of a few teenage kids; this is the story of the youthful spirit that echoes in us all.

Author Biography: Nathan Baca, 19, is currently a sophomore broadcast journalism major at the University of La Verne in Southern California. He was born and lived the first 18 years of his life in the "Poinsettia City" of Ventura, California. During his junior year at Ventura High School, his English teacher assigned the class to write a 20 page reflective autobiography. Not content with stopping once his assignment was in, Nathan continued writing until it became a full-length novel. Once arriving at college, he has become involved in the campus radio and television stations as well as its newspaper and debate squad. Nathan hopes that the initiative this endeavor has given him will propel him to an innovative career in television news.
