About the Author

HL Grandin grew up in the shadow of history near Mt. Vernon, Virginia. As a boy, he spent many hours exploring the hills, valleys and waterways throughout Virginia, which nurtured a deep appreciation for nature and its forces.

Those adventures became the inspiration for those of Tyoga Weathersby in both The Legend of Tyoga Weathersby and its sequel, The Search for Sunlei.

Educated in Virginia and France, HL has spent his career in healthcare, with a stint as proprietor/owner of a coffee and blues bar. He is a self-taught musician and was a drummer for several bands throughout high school and college. He currently entertains his wife and dog with his 12-string guitar. For the past 25 years, HL has lived on a small farm in western Maryland where he and his wife raised three daughters and a passel of critters.
