About Dale Amidei


I have lived and written on the wind- and snow-swept Northern Plains of South Dakota, the Sonoran Desert of Arizona, and the beautiful Hill Country of Texas. Novels about people and the perspectives guiding their decisions are the result. My fiction features faith-based themes set in the real world, a place in which one may encounter profanity, violence, and sexual situations.

My characters are realistically portrayed as caught between heaven and earth. Not always what they should be, nor what used to be, they are like all of us. I hope that my work can entertain you, make you think, and touch your heart. My methodology is complex, but my motive is simple: I have things to say, so I write.
