My name is Gary Rodriguez, and I live in California. I'm the president of LeaderMetrix Inc. Over the past few years, I've written three non-fiction books and then I decided to write my first YA adventure novel, Escape Through The Wilderness.

    

One of the most gratifying things about writing is creating a story that others find exciting and inspirational.  When I finished writing Escape Through The Wilderness and reread the manuscript, I was amazed that the story came out of me.  I believe I was given this inspiring story as a gift.  If I had chosen not to write and share it, the story would have died inside me and never been told.  But I thank God that didn't happen.  In fact, the opposite is true. The gift he gave to me is now my gift to the world.  I hope the story entertains and encourages all who read it.



Birth Place: San Jose, CA USA

Accomplishments: Gary was awarded the Silver Star, the nations third highest award for valor, while serving in Viet Nam. He is also still recognized as the youngest drill sergeant in the history of the US Army (Pentagon confirmed) at age 18.

Escape Through The Wilderness
Sixteen-year-old Savannah Evans walks with a slight limp thanks to a gymnastics' accident that dashed her Olympic dreams, but that doesn't stop her from attending an adventure camp in Idaho for the summer. At Camp Arrowhead, she quickly befriends Jade Chang and Rico Cruz, but Conner Swift taunts her because of her injury. When the four are teamed together for an overnight white-water rafting adventure, what was supposed to be a fun expedition, turns into a nightmare when there's a serious incident that no one could have predicted. When the four finally drag themselves out of the river, they're bruised, beaten, lost, and twenty-five miles from camp. Adding to their concern was the threat of encountering Vexel, who they had heard about during the Fright Night tales around the campfire. He is a vicious animal that roams and hunts in the nearby woods. Savi becomes the unlikely leader and tries to guide the group back to Camp Arrowhead, but limited supplies, injuries, and ongoing concerns about Vexel—who she and the others fear is stalking them, complicate the harrowing return trip. Readers will enjoy dramatic survival scenes and the group working together, solving problems, and learning to overcome adversity.
