Tyler and Chris Mercier moved to Hawaii in 2007 from Silicon Valley to slow down, eat healthier foods, get back in shape, and lose weight. After living 4 years on Hawaii Island, they never want to leave.
“The warmth, beauty, fresh foods, and slow pace on Hawaii island gives us sustenance and has improved our health and happiness. We have lowered our cost of living and concentrated on publishing to remain on the islands.”
The Mercier’s have web sites and blogs that share what they have learned about living in Hawaii and getting healthy. They published their first book in 2011, Your Ideal Hawaii Home, which provides information about Hawaii's climate, property laws, culture, and tropical living that are important to know before buying or building a home in Hawaii.

In 1990, while living in Los Alamos, New Mexico, Tyler Mercier started a public education effort to promote understanding about the health effects of radiation. Los Alamos National Laboratory was eager to help him and over a four month period gave him access to their nuclear physicists, monitoring experts and medical professionals to support the creation a layman’s presentation on the health effects of radiation. Los Alamos scientists also instructed him in how to set up his own radiation monitoring system to create an independent monitoring system to dispel the concerns of citizens in the region. He purchased the equipment and services to create a monitoring program that remained in place until he left the area in 1996. The results of Tyler's radiation monitoring program revealed radiation levels twice what LANL had reported in the monitored area. The Laboratory later confirmed his findings with their instruments. Local and national articles were published about Tyler Mercier's monitoring system and work. Since 1995, numerous independent organizations have set up radiation monitors and the health effects from exposures are widely recognized.
