"A GRAND yarn you can't put down." Janet Chapple, author of Yellowstone Treasures, on Repeating History.
"The details paint a word picture so vivid that readers can see the story play out in their minds."
Steve Dunkelberger, Tacoma Weekly, on True Gold.
I am fascinated by the possibilities of what if. The memories of place that some people call ghosts, the möbius effect of time travel. You won't find vampires or werewolves in my books, I'm afraid. Or horror. I am more interested in the potential effects of the fantastic on normal folks, and in inserting it into well-researched historical events, populated mostly by people who really lived.
I'm also an avid student of the road, and Cross-Country will not be my last travel adventure book.

A truly delightful story, one of a series, about Yellowstone National Park in the time of World War II, when most of the Park staff were off fighting the war, and there were few visitors because there was no gas for traveling.
Ranger Will McManis is the guy in charge of the Upper Geyser Basin. He and his wife have had the care of their now five-year-old grandson since his birth, due to the death of his mother and his father's despair. But after this summer, he will be moving to Denver to live with his father and to go to school.
A beautiful story full of loving details of the countryside, the relationship with the three family members, and a ghost.
Oops! Didn't mean to tell you about the ghost.
This is a gentle story with just a smidge of paranormal. Just a smidge. Definitely a warm-your-heart work.
