Product description

About the Author

Jeff Altabef lives in New York with his wife, two daughters, and Charlie the dog. He spends time volunteering at the writing center in the local community college. After years of being accused of "telling stories," he thought he would make it official. He writes in both the thriller and young adult genres. Fourteenth Colony, a political thriller, was his debut novel. Shatter Point, a thriller, published by Evolved Publishing was his second novel. It won the Pinnacle Book Achievement Award for Best Thriller, Fall 2014. Jeff's first Young Adult novel, Wind Catcher: A Chosen Novel, is being published on March 23rd by Evolved Publishing. He's very happy and proud that his co-author is his teenaged daughter, Erynn Altabef. Wind Catcher has won the 2015 Readers' Favorite Gold Medal for Coming of Age Novels, the 2015 Beverly Hills Book Award for Best YA Fiction and a Mom's Choice Award. As an avid Knicks fan, Jeff is prone to long periods of melancholy during hoops season. Jeff has a column on The Examiner focused on writing and a blog designed to encourage writing by those who like telling stories.

Erynn Altabef is an avid reader, dancer, and community activist. When she's not in High School, she loves Starbucks, performing in school musicals, baking, and watching movies with her friends. Some of her favorite authors are Veronica Roth, Joelle Charbonneau, and her dad! (That would be Jeff Altabef.) She has co-authored with her dad the Chosen series of young adult fantasy thrillers.

Review

"This is an enjoyable read for all ages that goes by as fast as the authors can unspool it. " Kirkus Reviews "This very unique and refreshingly original contemporary fantasy has elements of high epic fantasy woven throughout it, and it will surprise and delight even the most jaded fantasy readers." Jack Magnus, Readers' Favorite Book Reviews "Wind Catcher stands out from the crowd. It's... a powerful young adult adventure steeped in Native American legend and tradition." -Donovan, eBook Reviewer, Midwest Book Review "A treat to read." Awesome Indies "Wind Catcher is one of the best thrillers for YA that I have read in some time.... If I hadn't had to eat and sleep, I would have read it right through without stopping. It is just that good!" Bookends "I truly enjoyed this book. First the characters are good especially, Juliet and her grandfather Sicheii... This story seemed fresh and original. Finally the writing is superb, great flow, great analogies, great dialogue. If you like books like Harry Potter, Inkheart, Divergent, Twilight, and such, you will love this book!!!!!!!!!" Author Alex Mueck "A page turning thrill a minute, Wind Catcher kept me guessing until it's final pages. Age appropriate YA literature at its best. Don't miss it!" Judy Murphy, Masters School Librarian
