Hello, and welcome to my website.
I'm a writer. My book Emperors of the Ice is now available both in hardback (with four maps and over 70 photographs) and as an e-book. It won both an 'Outstanding Book' designation from the National Science Teachers Association and a Washington State Book Award; reviewers have described it as "an enthralling tale," and "so gripping you will not want to put it down." You should probably buy copies for all your friends, right now.
My YA thriller, Tongues, the first volume in the Trouble Deaf Heaven trilogy, is about the Tower of Babel, the origin of civilization, and the meaning of life, among other things. It will be published by Skyscape in 2014. I'm also working on several other books.
The camel I'm leaning on is a concrete replica of a marble Ming Dynasty original. It lives outside the Asian Art Museum in Seattle's Volunteer Park.
