Walter Ihlefield

Walter Ihlefield started writing surrounded in an atmosphere of "The Twilight Zone," "The Outer Limits," and "Alfred Hitchcock Presents." (Yeah... that was a few years ago.) During his service in the U.S. Navy, he read the works of the two writers who probably had the largest influence on his own writing. Louis L'Amour, and Ross MacDonald. In 1996, he set out to write a novel that would test his abilities. After extensive research, several courses on writing, and countless revisions, "Banshee Rising" was born.

Walter is a certified SCUBA Diver, a Second Degree Black Belt, a golfer, a writer, a reviewer for two review sites, and thoroughly enjoys taking his Honda Gold Wing "Hawk" out on the open road with his wife, Susan.

He lives in the small community of Spring Grove, Virginia, USA, with his three main supporters, Peace, Quiet, and Susan, his Light and Inspiration.

From L'Amour, he learned the importance of making characters Honorable in their pursuit for justice. From MacDonald, he learned how to plant "red herrings" in a way that would make the reader absolutely sure of the ending, until the ending was revealed.
