    NORMAN OLLESTAD - "On February 19, 1979, I was in a plane crash with my father, his girlfriend Sandra, and the pilot of our charted Cessna. Sandra was 30 years old. My Dad was 43. I was 11. Just after sunrise, we slammed into a rugged 8,600 foot mountain engulfed in a blizzard. By the end of our nine-hour ordeal, I was the only survivor."

    Norman Ollestad studied creative writing at UCLA and attended UCLA Film School. His book, Crazy for the Storm : A Memoir of Survival has been named by Amazon as one of the best books of 2009. Starbucks has made it their pick for the summer and Warner Brothers has acquired the rights for development into a major motion picture.
