Victor Treutel (pronounced “troy-tle”) wrote THE SEA GRAPE Trilogy on the beaches of Florida, sailing the Caribbean Ocean, in the Mountains of North Carolina, and amongst the ancient castles of Germany.   Victor has lived throughout the United States and Europe and travels extensively throughout the world.   He is an avid storyteller and enjoys keeping friends entertained for hours telling stories that no one really knows are true or not.

Victor has worked in technology all of his professional career; he was a corporate executive with a Silicon Valley startup, writes software in multiple computer languages, has authored numerous technology industry publications, wrote software for the Walt Disney Company and dozens of other corporations, but mostly loves telling stories.  He is a golfer, scuba diver and bicyclist.

Victor grew up an “Army Brat” and graduated from high school in Heidelberg, Germany.  He is married and lives in Florida.

THE SEA GRAPE Trilogy Synopsis

Victor Treutel uncovered the characters and locations of THE SEA GRAPE Trilogy while writing his first novel, DEEPER THAN THE OCEAN. While he was scouting a location he stumbled upon the Sea Grape Manor on the Atlantic coast of Florida and the amazing people who called it home.   He returned to the Sea Grape Manor many times over the years and formed a strong bond with the characters you will meet in THE SEA GRAPE Trilogy.

THE SEA GRAPE Trilogy is loosly based on real people, places and events.  The key word of the last sentence being “loosly”.  Which means that most of THE SEA GRAPE Trilogy is simply fiction.   No one but the author knows what is true and what is made up; and he won’t tell.  He said something about protecting the innocent.
