S.L. Stoner has long pursued social and economic justice. She’s fought the “good” fight standing beside many others in prisons, free clinics, neighborhood and labor organizations. The FBI and local police have honored these efforts by producing thousands of pages detailing her activities.
Believing in the adage that those who do not know history are doomed to repeat it, Stoner writes, in the tradition of historian Howard Zinn, to tell the story of ordinary people’s heroic, sacrificial and effective place in history. She uses fiction to make that story both entertaining and memorable.
Stoner continues to be engaged in the struggle between the relatively powerless and the overly powerful. Currently she provides legal services to those seeking workplace justice as labor union members.
Two union organizers have disappeared and so Sage Adair begins a desperate search that takes him into the musty blackness of Portland’s underground to confront mercenary shanghaiers, the pain of lost friendship, and his own fears.
A secret operative in America's 1902 labor movement, leading a double life that balances precariously on the knife-edge of discovery, finds his mission entangled with the fate of a young man accused of murder. An early 20th century Pacific Northwest historical mystery based on a true crime committed by Portland's ruling elite.
