Bert Silva's creative life began with an interest in drawing. He worked for a time at Walt Disney Studios in the animation dept. Now a full-time writer, Silva has written a number of short stories and novels. An avid sailor, he's made passages to La Paz, Baja California Sur and Mazatlan, Mexico with his 30-foot sloop. He has crewed on other boats to Hawaii and down the Atlantic from Connecticut to the Caribbean. These experiences helped Silva write sea adventures like Vendetta - in Pursuit of a Scoundrel and Faraway, a story included in The Last Whale Watch. Bert Silva lives on the California central coast, an ideal location for cruising among the Channel Islands offshore. The coves there sometimes fill with boats from the mainland. Silva suggests it is smart to anchor well, especially when the Santa Ana winds might blow, and smarter still to sail around to the west-facing side of Santa Cruz Island and drop the hook in Smugglers Cove.
