P. Wesley Lundburg has been an Alaska Charter Boat Captain, Coast Guardsman, college English professor, and professional editor. Wes holds a B.A. in English, Master's degrees in Literature and Philosophy, and a PhD in Education. He works full-time in higher education and writes most every day as part of his "down time" and fun time.
Wes launched his fiction-writing career in 7th grade with a teacher-acclaimed UFO abduction story, became addicted to writing, and hasn't stopped since. Besides his current set of novels, most of his published work has been creative essays, particularly nature pieces, and he has written many outdoor travel articles. He has also published academic papers, and presented papers and workshops in his field of Literature and Communication. His greatest joy has been in writing fiction, however, and he has written numerous short stories, some of which have seen publication.
Wes' writing is steeped in characters and a sense of place. Raised in San Diego, California, and having lived more than 17 years in Alaska, these are the sources of his major fiction works. In Alaska, he served in the Coast Guard and later ran a one-boat fishing charter company. After stints in Florida, Alaska, Minnesota, Boston, and Long Island, Wes has returned home to San Diego with his wife and kids, and spends time away from work and writing either at the beach or on his mountain bike, wondering how many coyotes and jack rabbits are peering out at him on the trails.
