will be published November 2.

Here's the cover (beautiful photo of

for my novel ISLAND AIR, featuring our hero
Vatican Jones, who builds a big wooden box
using haiku dimensions 5x7x5 feet, in hopes of
sailing it out to the islands. Alas, things go amiss
when a television crew arrives by train in town
to film a detective show and he becomes a suspect.
Takes place during 1992 and 1942 in Bellingham,
featuring cafes and libraries, streetsingers and
wind creatures. I've been working on this for a
year and I think you'll love it. A perfect winter
"He wondered what Philip Marlowe would do…
stuck behind a painted line in an alley full of rain…
a lost book of Japanese poetry…and a fifty year
old spoon in his coat pocket."
