Meet Brett Champan while he's in town promoting his third book, Ride With Me.
Earl Timmings is a hardworking young man graced with deep character and a zeal for life—and fishing. But nothing would be the same for him after stepping into the old country store one spring afternoon and meeting Ruth, a beautiful girl from Iowa who would steal his heart. Weeks later, when Ruth returns to the small town for good, a sweet summer romance begins. But when their relationship blossoms into something more, World War II threatens to cut it short. As Earl ships out for the Pacific front, they will soon discover that few things ever stay the same.
About the author: Brett Champan was born and raised in north-central Wisconsin, where he developed a passion for books and the outdoors early on. After earning a degree in accounting from the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, Brett moved to Chicago, where he began working professionally and became active with a life-giving church that stretches throughout the city. The city’s people, contagious energy, and fast pace easily grew on him. But even amidst the bustle, he had not forgotten his desire to write, and in 2009, he published his first novel, Rearview Sunset. In addition to writing, Brett enjoys fishing, hunting, and spending time with friends around the fire. He also has a passion for teaching and helping people grow spiritually. He splits his time between Chicago and the Northwoods, and his dog Cruzer is usually close by his side.
