Scuba diving off the coast of California inspired Ryan Lockwood to write his first novel, a thriller set in the vast ocean.
“I’d always wanted to write a novel. I really just dove into it,” said Lockwood, who grew up in Evergreen.
Lockwood’s book, titled “Below,” is officially hitting the shelves at area bookstores this week.
“It’s based on a real-world current event,” said Lockwood.
