More About the Author

I'm an American novelist and non-fiction author, with a bestselling HarperCollins series on American adventurer Ethan Gage in the Napoleonic era that has sold into 31 languages. My newest novel, another Ethan, is "The Three Emperors," available May 6, 2014. It is the seventh book in the Ethan Gage series, and follows "The Barbed Crown," published in May of 2013. The paperback version of "The Barbed Crown" will be available in May of 2014.

My nonfiction works centers on the Pacific Northwest. An upcoming nonfiction book is "The North Cascades: Finding Beauty and Renewal In the Wild Nearby," a coffee table book from Mountaineers Press. It will appear September 15, 2014.

I began my writing career as a newspaper reporter in 1973,sharing a Pulitzer at the Seattle Times for coverage of the Exxon Valdez oil spill. I also taught for five years at Western Washington University's Huxley College of the Environment.

I published my first non-fiction book, "The Final Forest," in 1992. It was updated in 2010 to "The Final Forest: Big Trees, Forks, and the Pacific Northwest." It won the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Award and the Governor Writers Award.

I followed that with "Northwest Passage: The Great Columbia River," still in print.

My first novel, "Ice Reich," came in 1998 and is a World War II thriller based on a real-life Nazi expedition to Antarctica. This bestseller is still available as an ebook.

My other novels:

"Getting Back." An eco-thriller set in the Australian Outback in the near future.

"Dark Winter." A killer is on the loose among the personnel at America's South Pole base. Creepy!

"Hadrian's Wall." Love, war, and conspiracy during the late Roman Empire.

"The Scourge of God." A young couple must survive the invasion of the empire by Attila the Hun.

"Blood of the Reich." A contemporary Seattle woman sees her car blown up and learns of her horrific connection to a 70-year-old Nazi conspiracy that will take her to Tibet and Germany.

And the Ethan Gage novels:

"Napoleon's Pyramids." Our American hero accompanies Napoleon's 1798 invasion of Egypt and grapples with pyramid mysteries.

"The Rosetta Key." Ethan and his companion Astiza are caught up in Bonaparte's 1799 invasion of the Holy Land and his ascension to power in France.

"The Dakota Cipher." Norse mysteries play a role in a struggle for power on the Great Lakes frontier.

"The Barbary Pirates." Ethan and his scientist friends find an ancient super-weapon coveted by pirates who are at war with America.

"The Emerald Storm." A stolen emerald leads Ethan and his new family into peril in Haiti and the lush, perilous isles of the Caribbean.

"The Barbed Crown." Ethan finds himself a spy as Napoleon prepares to crown himself emperor and France challenges England at the naval showdown of Trafalgar.

"The Three Emperors." Seeking to reunited with Astiza and his son Harry in 1805, Ethan must survive the battle of Austerlitz and hunt down a medieval machine that can foretell the future.

Additional nonfiction includes:

"On Puget Sound." With Art Wolfe photos.

"Natural Grace." Essays on plants and animals in my native Pacific Northwest.

"Green Fire: A History of Huxley College." The nation's first dedicated environmental college.

As you can see, I'm curious about many things. I also enjoy research.

Travel for my novels has taken me to the Arctic, Antarctic, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Australia, Sicily, Greece, Paris, Britain, Hungary, Tibet...hey, someone's got to do it. I've traveled on a sailboat in the South Pacific, landed on an aircraft carrier, flown in a B-52, visited the South Pole, and been terrified flying with the Blue Angels.

As a journalist, I was a Nieman Fellow at Harvard University, won National Science Foundation fellowships to Antarctica, and speak frequently on environmental issues. I've covered Congress, the eruption of Mount St. Helens, the environment, science, social issues - even the military. I've traveled frequently for my writing, but live in the Pacific Northwest where I was born. I'm married, with two grown children.

I live in a house looking out at the San Juan Islands, between Vancouver and Seattle, surrounded by fir, cedar, and hemlock, and sometimes get to watch bald eagles while I'm writing. Connecting with readers is one of life's biggest thrills.

Ethan gage
A sort of serious Harry Flashman / MacGyver hybrid in the 1800's. A man for whom no mission is to big. Life has changed somewhat since he has changes his personal circumstances, but his need for racing from one sword fight to another, from one intrigue to the next is not diminished.
As writers go WD is excellent, the plot is fun and well told, couple that with the daring do of Ethan Gage and you the reader will find yourself flicking to the next page and the next and if you're like me looking up to find its 2am and you have work in the morning, wondering if you can squeeze one more chapter in before lights out and not be too exhausted for work.
Of the 5 books in the series, this isn't my favourite that's the last one Barbary Pirates (but I love pirate tales) what I am amazed at is that given his undoubted ability and the comparisons noted below in the description, how is this man not bigger, how are the books not hitting higher in the charts? Maybe because people don't shout out...so here goes "BUY THIS BOOK & THIS SERIES, ITS GREAT FUN"
A recommended book and series go buy them

I've read all the Ethan Gage novels that have been released on the Kindle and have found each an enjoyable experience. I prefer longer novels, which I class these as and which allow for some long sessions

I understand other comments which relate to the Flashman series and also see a similarity, which is no bad thing for me as I have been a fan of those for 30 years!

I also appreciate the fact that the author took time to reply to a few emails I sent him regarding the release of the novels on Kindle

I'm a big fan of Ethan Gage stories in general and for several reasons. First, the character of Ethan Gage is just enough of a rogue to have a lot of appeal. He is flawed and because of that, we can relate to him. Second, the settings are grand and well written. Third the plots are always exciting and full of twists and turns. With "The Emerald Storm" Dietrich again creates an exciting historical novel full of action, humour and typical Ethan Gage fun. This is one of his best yet ...
