Alex Lyttle

Alex Lyttle is a pediatrician living in Calgary, Alberta with his wife and four children. His first novel, From Ant to Eagle, was based on his experiences as a doctor and won several awards. The Rise of Winter steps away from the medical world and enters that of fantasy – a world created during bedtime stories for his eldest daughter. When not working or writing, Alex enjoys… well… it doesn’t really matter what he enjoys because he mainly just chases toddlers around the house.

From Ant to Eagle

My name is Calvin Sinclair, I’m eleven years old and I have a confession… I killed my brother.
It’s the summer before grade six and Calvin Sinclair is bored to tears. He’s recently moved from a big city to a small town and there’s nothing to do. It’s hot, he has no friends and the only kid around is his six-year-old brother, Sammy, who can barely throw a basketball as high as the hoop. Cal occupies his time by getting his brother to do almost anything: from collecting ants to doing Calvin’s chores. And Sammy is all too eager – as long as it means getting a “Level” and moving one step closer to his brother’s Eagle status.
When Calvin meets Aleta Alvarado, a new girl who shares his love for Goosebumps books and adventure, Sammy is pushed aside. Cal feels guilty but not enough to change. At least not until a diagnosis causes things at home to fall apart and he’s left wondering whether Sammy will ever complete his own journey…

The Rise of Winter (Terra Protectorum Book 1)

Centuries ago, Terra, the world, was nearly destroyed by humans. In the wake of that destruction, Terra created the Guardians—a group sworn to protect Her. But humans have returned to their plundering ways and Terra needs the Guardians. The Guardians are now fractured, their leader murdered years before. They need a new leader—a new Terra Protectorum—but when a young girl is chosen, outrage ensues. Questions demand answers. Why has Terra selected a girl with no knowledge of the Guardians? Why has she chosen a human when it is the humans destroying the earth? And most importantly, why has she chosen the girl whose father murdered the last Terra Protectorum?
