Mistwood Publishing Started as an idea, a dream.
Slowly, it became a reality.
A childhood filled with moments of wild imagination, late nights reading R.A. Salvatore novels, and weekends watching The Lord of the Rings, created a foundation. That foundation grew as a young Shae R. Mowry journeyed through the rough terrains of high school and found solitude in stories. Stories that transcended reality and brought him to a place of refuge. Steadily, ideas began to form in his head, stories and characters of his making. These ideas grew as he moved on to attend college at Olivet Nazarene University. Sitting on his favorite bench outside Chapman Hall, he read The Lord of the Rings by his hero, J.R.R. Tolkien. Mowry’s dream began to focus. Ideas were written down, and a vision began to take shape. By his junior year at Olivet, Mowry had dabbled in putting pen to paper but had failed to complete any lasting story. Persistence would prove useful to him as he continued to attempt writing. In 2015, Mowry graduated Olivet with a bachelor’s degree in Social Science Education and a minor in English Education. That following summer, Mowry had finished the first draft to his first novel.
