S.W. Capps is a master storyteller whose debut novel, SALMON RUN, was called a "modern day Siddhartha". His latest novel, TRAIN IN THE DISTANCE, is an 'Amazon Breakthrough Novel Awards' Quarterfinalist.


Background Information

A former TV news reporter, S.W. Capps left the world of glitzy sets and pompous anchors for a full-time writing career.  

His first novel, SALMON RUN (a book club favorite) was released in 2007, and chronicles the journey of a desperate corporate executive-turned-fugitive as he flees from the law, a bloodthirsty ex-wife and a hired killer.  

With his latest work, TRAIN IN THE DISTANCE (an 'Amazon Breakthrough Novel Awards' Quarterfinalist) he exposes the world of television news with a tale of good vs. evil, of career vs. conscience, of survival of the fittest on the most elemental scale.  The result is a story that's difficult to fathom, yet impossible to discount.  After all, he has been there.

He now lives and writes in the Pacific Northwest with his wife, two children, and 'investigative' dog.  He is currently working on his next novel.

Additional Information

SALMON RUN: With the law, a bloodthirsty ex-wife and a hired killer on his heels, Woodrow Salmon, a desperate corporate executive turned fugitive, embarks on a strange and harrowing journey, one that will lead him through the minefields of his past and change his life forever. TRAIN IN THE DISTANCE: Under increasing threat of danger, a young reporter confronts the sinister forces behind the TV station he works for.
