“Basil Sands knows how to write action.” Best Selling author James Scott Bell

“Basil Sands’ excellent narration breathes life into (the) characters…” BookDragon, Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center


Authoring action packed novels and short stories, Basil has built an audience of tens of thousands to his eBooks and audiobooks.

He has lived in Alaska, San Diego, DC, Baltimore, and Ohio. He tried a career in the Marines but injuries sent him home after only six months. He worked as military dining manager at the National Security Agency, owned a computer shop, was a carpenter, farmer, actor, lumberjack, voice actor, EMT, network admin, helpdesk supervisor, Boy Scout leader, IT trainer, radio talk host, youth minister, and after 9/11 was a sergeant in the Alaska Defense Force Coastal Scouts.

Until a ski injury slowed him down, he had been an avid weight lifter and could bench press 420 lbs. Now he’s limited to a bit on the eliptical machine each day and curling the occasional pint of Guinness.

He lives in Anchorage Alaska with his wife and sons.
