by Wesley D. Payne It turns out today is one of the most indescribable incidents to take place in the archives. No one can describe it or where it came from, but one things for sure its out for blood. In the spring of 2003, a group of famous athletes known for their fantastic shows in the X-Games decided it was time to make a change in their lives after years of no responsibility. They came up with this idea to create a business that they could enjoy doing as well as using to start a future. It turned out that the idea ended up in chaos as each of the team members disappeared into the hills of Deer Creek. Alcano Lodge was the last place any of them were seen. Still, police search for evidence to uncover the unsolved and bizarre disappearance of the athletes. Alcano Lodge is one of the most obscure crime scenes to be unfolded without closure. ABOUT THE AUTHOR I was born on March 6, 1985, in Hot Springs, Arkansas. Currently, Im in my junior year of college majoring in Business Administration. When I graduated from Parkway North High in St. Louis, Missouri, I began to experience a knack for writing. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would ever complete a novel. In fact, I dont even think my intentions were to write a novel. I had just planned on telling an interesting story that I would eventually look back on and maybe share with others. It turned out I had more than just a simple story to tell and I really had a novel the whole time, so I guess you can say my writing talent was there all along, but it was unknown. Writing a novel takes time and lots of inspiration. Its just about having an idea and turning that idea into a story. Most of my inspiration comes from many of my travels with my family. My father is a colonel in the U.S. Army, so we traveled a lot while I was growing up. Every move was a different experience for me and a chance to enrich myself with new concepts of writing and fulfilling my urge for new scenery, which inspired me to bring you Alcano Lodge. This book is just my starting point, so be sure to stay tuned for more horror, suspense, and drama, and remember, just because something hasnt been stated doesnt mean it doesnt exist. I would like to dedicate this book to my family and friends. I love you all, and thanks for your support! I really appreciate it, and I could not have done it without you!
