Karl Beckstrand is the award-winning author of 15 books and more than 40 online titles. Raised in San Jose, CA, he received a B.A. in journalism from BYU and an M.A. in international relations from APU. A bilingual publisher and media instructor with traditional and digital publishing experience, Beckstrand speaks about both kinds of publishing. He has presented to Taiwan’s Global Leadership for Youth, city and state governments, library and humanities organizations, festivals, and schools. He has lived abroad and enjoys volleyball and kayaking (usually not at the same time). Beckstrand's nationally-lauded nonfiction, ebook mysteries, and Spanish/bilingual books feature characters of color—and usually end with a twist. His work has appeared in: Barnes & Noble, Border’s Books, Deseret Book, Costco, Kindle/Nook/iBooks, The Children’s Miracle Network, LDS Film Festival, U.S. Congressional Record, and Papercrafts Magazine. Available for interview and speaking. http://KarlBeckstrand.com
