About the Author

Retired MASTER SERGEANT ROGER SPARKS has served within the military as both a Recon Marine and an Air Force Pararescueman for over 25 years. Sparks is a recipient of the Silver Star, one of our nation's highest awards for valor, for his actions during a fierce firefight with insurgents in Afghanistan's Watapur Valley on Nov. 14, 2010. Sparks has transitioned from a career of special operations into the civilian world as an artist, author and speaker. He lives with his family in Eagle River, Alaska. DON REARDEN is a professor at the University of Alaska Anchorage, producer, screenwriter, and the author of The Washington Post Notable novel, The Raven's Gift, and co-author of the hit memoir Never Quit. He lives with his wife and two children in Bear Valley, Alaska.


"Inspiring....fascinating and adrenaline-rushing....[Sparks's] book, extraordinary in its own gritty way, shows us what it is to be human and humane." --Anchorage Daily News

"Gripping, fast paced, and entertaining. Warrior's Creed shares an inside look into the intense challenges and hardships Roger and men like him have to endure and ultimately overcome to arrive at an enlightened and spiritual frame of mind. I related to so many tales and philosophies of this book, and it has left me inspired to work even harder, and to save any excuses I may have. Warrior's Creed reconfirms that no matter what type of warrior you are that all warriors live by a similar creed." --Laird Hamilton, legendary big-wave surfer

"One of the best books I've read all year. Words like honor, sacrifice, and duty get bandied around a great deal. Warrior's Creed gets down to the guts of it all, then digs even deeper. It's a book that speaks on many levels--wrenchingly visceral and entertaining. An incredible story, marvelously told." --Marc Cameron, New York Times bestselling author of Tom Clancy: Oath of Office

"Shaking Roger Sparks' hand that day in Afghanistan led me to re-think everything I thought I knew about being a man, an artist, a father, and an American. There isn't a day that goes by without me thinking about him and his story in someway." --Scott Campbell, Fine Artist

"Sparks' story provides a window into a harsh and violent human wilderness that few will ever encounter." --Seth Kantner, author of the national bestseller Ordinary Wolves
