A native of West Virginia, Gary Clites is a teacher, writer, and journalist living in Chesapeake Beach, Maryland. While he was a student at West Virginia University, the college's scuba team discovered a body in nearby Cheat Lake. The police eventually determined that criminals had been using a backwater of the lake as a dumping ground for illegal materials for years. That experience served as inspiration for his first novel, Seneca Wood. His website can be found at www.garyclites.com.
