Meet Author John V. Suter

I am an author and educator who teaches middle and high school science. I live and tend a thirty-four acre farm in the ridges of Sale Creek, Tennessee. My wife and two children help in the farm chores and giving me inspiration to write such interesting stories.

The stories that I typically gravitate toward are tales of ancient treasures that have been lost. Tales of Atlantis and Cibola have always intrigued me along with modern stories like the treasure of Forrest Fenn. The history and the hunt melt together into a perfect scenario for adventure and discovery. I have tried continually to decipher the clues through research on numerous treasure seeking adventures, and my family has enjoyed many outing searching for hidden objects. Pair that with being a scientist, and there is a recipe for a new book series.

The love of history and the stories associated with hidden treasure were the inspiration for Brett Wilson. The character is loosely based on my own daughter. She has accompanied me on many excursions, and has developed a talent for research and discovery. The means which Brett uses to locate treasure is grounded in the principles of science. Her searches are not based on guesses, but the concrete evidence that science produces.

I enjoy writing the Brett Wilson series and find the pathway to discovery always brings excitement. Riding along with Brett Wilson in every tale is a journey that I truly enjoy.
