The best news is that my latest Latouche County mystery, set in the Columbia River Gorge, is out from Perseverance Press (www.danielpublishing.com/perseverance/) as of September 7.  Call Down the Hawk is a lively mystery, full of quirky characters and quirkier action.  I'll be doing a talk and signing at Vintage Books in Vancouver WA on Sept 30 and am also looking forward to panels at Orycon in Portland in November.  I intend to go to Left Coast Crime in Reno next spring and will comment on that when I have more information.  See you there!

It's early days for reviews of a book that won't be out for a month.  Here are a handful of quotes about my award-winning Latouche County books:

"clean, effective characterization"--Reviewing the Evidence, and "satisfyingly convoluted"--Deadly Pleasures, or "a nail-biting roller coaster ride"--Mystery Scene, and "very highly recommended"--I Love a Mystery, not to mention "a fast and good read"--Crimespree.
