I’ve finally gotten around to updating my events page, and have two confirmed events between not and early May: I had such a fantastic time at A Book For All Seasons in Leavenworth, WA last weekend, that I’m going back on April 30th for Indie Bookstore Day here in the US. I’ll be there from 3-6 PM, signing books and chatting it up with customers. It really is a fantastic store. Can’t… Read More
Just a quick heads up that I’ve got another giveaway going on over on my Goodreads page. Enter today for a chance to win a signed hardcover copy of NOWHERE WILD! Contest ends April 10th, so by my count, you’ve got just 11 days left to enter. Hurry!

Just a quick, final reminder that I will be doing readings / signings of NOWHERE WILD in Leavenworth and Wenatchee today.

I finally did it. After seven and a half years of iPhones, I took the leap today and bought myself a new Samsung Galaxy S7 Android phone. For the last 3+ years, I’ve been using an iPhone 5, and I liked it, but I absolutely hated iTunes, and I just didn’t want to have another device tied to that horrible piece of software. When the battery on my iPhone started flaking out… Read More
Just a quick reminder to add a note your calendar that I will be at the Renfrew Branch of the Vancouver Public Library this Saturday, March 12 at 2:00 PM.

I’ll be talking about my writing process, doing a reading from Nowhere Wild, taking questions and then selling / signing books. It looks like the forecast is for… Read More
I made a small proclamation of victory back on the 24th of February on Twitter that I had finished my first draft of the sequel to NOWHERE WILD called NOWHERE HOME.
