C D Tuttle


C. D. Tuttle was born and raised in Central Oklahoma. Through learning from his great grandmother, who was in the Oklahoma land rush of 1891, and the experiences of his father, he developed a passionate interest in the old West. He spent his formative years on a farm in Lincoln County, Oklahoma. Well educated in the sciences, he spent his professional life as a geologist, zoologist and naturalist. Throughout his travels to wild places such as Africa, Southeast Asia, India, Australia, Central and South America, he never lost touch with his Western upbringing. At a young age his mother introduced him to a youth book club where he became interested in science fiction by H. G. Wells, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Robert E. Howard and many others from the early years of science fiction. These authors inspired him to write his first sci-fi story at age 11. He resided on the western slope of Colorado for 20 years. There, he enjoyed learning about the rich mining and ranching history. He operated an off-road touring company in Ouray, Colorado for nine years, touring visitors through the many mining ghost towns and filming sights for the movies of True Grit and How the West was won. He now resides in the beautiful Maine village of Rockport. Living in rugged environments has been his passion from Oklahoma to Alaska and Colorado and Maine, where his ancestors first arrived in the new world in 1635.
