S. J. Dahlstrom lives and writes in West Texas with his wife and children.  He has numerous magazine credits for his writing and photography.  A fifth-generation Texan, S.J. has spent his life bouncing around the outdoors from New Mexico and Texas, north to Colorado and Montana, and east to Michigan and New York.  He is interested in all things outdoors and creative.  He writes poetry and hunts deer; he plants wildflowers and breaks horses; he reads Ernest Hemingway, Emily Dickinson, C.S. Lewis, and Søren Kierkegaard.


The Adventures of Wilder Good is his first book series.  In his writing he draws on his experiences as a cowboy, husband, father—and as a founder of the Whetstone Boys Ranch in Mountain View, Missouri.  He says, “I wrote these stories about Wilder Good for kids who grew up in the outdoors and for kids who long for the outdoors…working, fishing, hunting, farms, ranches, mountains and prairies.  I think all kids want to do these things and go to these places.”
