Editorial Reviews

From the Author

An interview with author Shawn Inmon

Q: Why Alaska?
A: So many reasons. There is no place in North America that is like Alaska. It's easy to lose yourself there, see an incredible variety of wildlife, some of the best scenery in the world, and really, just have an adventure. I want all my travel books to be what I call an "attainable adventure." That is, something that is well off the beaten track, but still something that an average person can do. I'm in my late fifties, not an athlete by any measure, so these are all things that any of us can do if we just set out to do it.
Q: Any disasters on the trip?
A: Sadly, no. Of course, you never want things to go terribly wrong, but it does make for great stories when disaster strikes. Driving almost eight thousand miles in a 21 year old Subaru Outback, up and across some of the most desolate roads in the world, disasters were certainly a possibility, but I made it up and back in one piece.
Q: What's your single greatest memory of this trip?
A: That's impossible to answer. Spending a few days in Seward, Alaska, where I spent three summers as a teenager back in the 1970s, was special. So much of the town was unchanged from forty years ago, and that's a rare experience. When I think of this trip, though, it will always be about the solitary moments, pulled off to the side of a lonely road, looking out across at a shimmering lake, or a thundering river, or watching two foxes play or a black bear dig for grubs. The best things in Alaska happen unexpectedly. You never know when they will be right around the next bend in the road.
Q: Have you satisfied your desire to travel around Alaska now?
A: I don't think that will ever happen. As long as I am breathing, I will be thinking about my next trip to Alaska. I have two more on my mind. One, I want to ride the Alaska Marine Highway from beginning to end, and two, I want to do a flightseeing trip out to the remote areas that can only be reached by seaplane. Just writing that has made me excited to start planning the trip!

About the Author

Have you ever noticed how almost every author on Amazon is both a "bestselling" and "award winning" author? Well, so is Shawn Inmon. He once dominated the Lithuanian Clog Dancing Romance category for two heady days back in 2013. He also was named third runner up in Mrs. Marsh's third grade spelling bee in 1968. Somewhere, he still has the certificate to prove it. 
Although he has never matched either of these two career highlights, he keeps plugging away.
Shawn hails from Mossyrock, Washington--the setting for his first two books, Feels Like the First Time, and Both Sides Now. 

He is a full time author who lives in picturesque Seaview, Washington on the Pacific Ocean. 
Shawn learned everything he knows by having 400 different jobs, give or take a few. He worked as a Managing Broker of a real estate office, DJed at radio stations in Montana, Wyoming, Washington and California, sold stuff that you definitely wanted, cooked your hamburgers, fished for crabs, bought for department stores, and traveled the country with the Unlimited Hydroplanes. 

He is married to his high school sweetheart, Dawn. No one is sure why she puts up with him, as she once suffered a serious eye sprain when she rolled her eyes once too often at one of his "jokes." Shawn and Dawn have five daughters, a passel of grandchildren, and are the best pals of two chocolate labs named Hershey and Sadie, and serve a cruel taskmaster cat named Georgie Girl.
