Gabe Sluis


I am a 29 year old author from Northern California, as well as a graduate of UC Santa Cruz with a degree in Linguistics and a US Army veteran. While I primarily write Sci-Fi and Fantasy for young adults, I think my adventure style stories are easy to read and can be enjoyed by a large audience. I have just completed my third novel, ARROW OF TIME, and am in the process of trying to get it professionally published. I recently finished another short story collection FIVE DAYS ON PIMU, a bit shorter than the first, but in the same style as BEYOND THE GATE. Check 'em both out!

I love to get any feedback and truly appreciate everyone who has let me know what they think! I am more than willing to answer any questions! Leave a review and tell me what you think!

Smashwords Interview

What book should I read first?
I recommend checking out Beyond The Gate first. It's a collection of short stories, so you can try little bites of my work and see if you wanna try something bigger. There is lots of connections in BTG, so its also a good place to find tie-ins to the two novels as well as a sneak peak of the new one I'm working on.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in the woods of Northern California. My parents moved our family to a five acre plot because my dad didn't want his boys to grow up in a city. I think this was a huge shaping point in my life; growing up exploring the woods and playing in my tree fort. I think my care free childhood spent in this type of environment fostered my imagination into a love for Sci-Fi and Fantasy.

    I can confirm, the stories are short as reported. I liked them. There seem to be lots to think about hidden in the few words of each tale.
