William Graney

From the heart of the Los Padres National Forest to the boundless realms of imagination, William Graney has captivated us with tales that weave through the root of adventure, mystery, and the subtle beauty of the human spirit.

A true artisan of the written word, William embarked on his literary voyage by penning his first novel amidst the natural beauty surrounding him.

As we eagerly await the fall of 2024 for the release of his twelfth novel, “A Fierce Jewel,” be sure to grab a copy of his two latest books. “Pearls in the Rain” and “The Eyes That Bind.”

Wayne Diehl

Wayne Diehl has always had a passion for writing. After graduating from California State University, Northridge, in 1979, he faced family and financial obligations that altered his writing and teaching dreams, but he never gave up on his passion.

Today, Wayne has completed four more novels, each dedicated to his succeeding grandchildren. His latest work, “Thunder,” is inspired by a true story and takes place in the fictional mountain town of Pinewood.

Wayne is currently working on a sequel to his historical novel, “Loyal Son.” Wayne’s story is a powerful reminder that if you have a passion, you should never give up on it. Even if it takes 25 years to finally commit to it, the result will be worth it in the end.

Deep in the Forest: Beyond the Clouds

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to step into someone else’s life, to feel the emotion in their experiences from the outside without having to change anything about your own life?

Deep in the Forest, Beyond the Clouds is a collection of stories, poems and prose written by members of the Frazier Mountain Communities of the Los Padres National Forest, CA. Each small community is characterized by its own unique personality, and yet isolated from big city living, we come together as one.
