About the Author
Derek Dyer entered the literary world just like many others out there, with his parents reading to him before sleep. While Derek grew up, he was naturally attracted to fantastical stories, adventures, and exploring nature. This led to an overactive imagination. From there, Derek began to write short stories that, for the benefit of the public, should never be revealed. During high school, Derek was able to write out his thoughts clear enough to show others. Thanks to encouraging teachers, family, and friends, Derek never gave up the desire to share the worlds he created, thus leading to the decision of publishing Alder, the first of many to come.
