About the Author
In Brenton's own words: I love to read. When I was a kid I consumed books almost as much as I consumed food. A high school teacher, Mr. Judd, encouraged me to write my own stories. I'll never forget the day he had me read my version of "Beowulf" in front of the whole class. That's when my love of reading began to evolve into a love of writing. My love of reading continued through college, where I earned a bachelor's degree in business. My writing creativity was revived by my son, Joseph, when he asked me to tell him stories as we drove to Grandma's house. I have always had a fascination with all things outer-space. Growing up in rural Herriman, Utah, I also developed a love for rock hounding, nature and the mountains, which I have passed on to my son Joseph; our adventures provided inspiration for the book. I wanted to write stories showing a family spending quality time together that would appeal to readers of all ages.
