Berk Washburn

unnamedAndy Washburn and Berk Washburn, licensed lawyers and full-time writers, resided for years in the mountains of Colorado and deserts of southern Utah. Growing up in Trona, California, a small mining town near Death Valley, they roamed the barren wastelands of the Mojave Desert and developed a profound love for the desert. After high school, each went on separately to explore the customs and cultures of Latin America.

With expanded horizons, each returned home to raise families, finish graduate schools, start legal careers and wander in the austere wastelands of the law. Eventually, their lifelong love of storytelling brought them together to co-write a young-adult horror series, Dimensions in Death, situated in Searles Valley, California, beginning with Pitch Green (2013), then Mojave Green (2014), and now Fatal Green (2016).

Simultaneously with the release of their third book, Andy passed away following a long battle with cancer, but not before The Brothers Washburn had discovered the untold wonders of the perilous wastelands of terror, which lie just beneath the surface in the realms of the imagination.

Their books include:

pitch-green-9780988649125

mojave-green-9781939967855

fatal-green-9781631630347

He has contributed chapters to several books on computer graphics and game design, as well as publishing fiction in multiple genres. He lives in Utah with his wife and a constantly changing subset of their children and extended family.
