About P. Wesley Lundburg (Long Island, New York Author)

P. Wesley Lundburg

P. Wesley Lundburg has been an Alaska Charter Boat Captain, Coast Guardsman, college English professor, and professional editor. Wes holds a B.A. in English and an M.A. in Literature. He works full-time in higher education as a college dean and professor, writes in his spare time, and dreams of floating on a yacht and writing full-time.

Wes launched his fiction-writing career in 7th grade with a teacher-acclaimed UFO abduction story, became addicted to writing, and hasn't stopped since. Most of his published work has been creative essays, particularly cross-country skiing and hiking/backpacking pieces, and he has written many outdoor travel articles. He has also published academic papers, and presented papers and workshops in his areas of Literature and Communication. His greatest joy has been in writing fiction, however, and he has written numerous short stories, some of which have seen publication.

Raised in San Diego, California, Wes has lived in various parts of the U.S., but draws the material for much of his writing from his more than 17 years in Alaska, where he ran a one-boat fishing charter company and hiked or Nordic-skied many miles through the Alaska Wilderness. Wes now lives on Long Island, New York, with his wife, five kids, very small dog, and a smattering of wild bunnies that hide and dart around his back yard.
