Background Information

For as long as he can remember Basil Sands has been using facts and imagination to weave stories for anyone who would listen. The tapestry on which his tales began to form started with his birth in 1968 in rural interior Alaska and his school years among the cornfields of Ohio where he wished to be somewhere else, anywhere else, as long as it was exciting.The pallete of experiences from which he has been able to draw for the craft is as widely varied as can be. After finishing school he moved back to Alaska, then has lived in San Diego, Washington DC, Baltimore Md., and Columbus Ohio. He served his nation in the Marines then worked in a wide variety of fields (many simultaneously) including restaurant manager, military food service manager for the National Security Agency (chef to the spies), owned & operated a custom computer shop, worked as a carpenter, farmer, stage actor, lumberjack, tv commercial voice actor, Wilderness Rescue Certified Emergency Medical Technician, computer network manager, helpdesk supervisor, Boy Scout leader, IT training specialist, radio talk show host, computer forensics technician, youth minister, and after 9/11 spent three years as a sergeant in the Alaska State Defense Force Coastal Scouts. On a side note, he also happens to be an expert marksman with a variety of weapons.This plethora of experiences has given him a background of actual hands on knowledge that can make a story come to life with details that others may miss.He currently lives in Anchroage Alaska with his beautiful Korean wife of twenty years and their three sons.To get an idea of the depth and scope of Basil's writing check out the jacket descriptions on the "Novels in the Works" page or download his MP3 Audio Books.
