Hi! I'm Bill Streever, and like all human beings I am many things - a husband, a father, a biologist, a hiker, a sailer, a diver. . . . It's a long list. But since you have come to this page you probably know me or have heard of me as a writer, and maybe even as a bestselling writer. Yes, I like to write. I've written some books and articles, and I will write more books and articles. I hope you will read something I've written, and if you like it I hope you will share it with your friends. Thanks for visiting my site!
