My friends are rocking the black-and-white landscapes lately, which inspired me to tackle this shot. It’s from a visit to Utah’s Arches National Park. That’s Delicate Arch, the one you see on Utah license plates.

Five-Star Amazon Review for Isle Royale

August 7, 2013

9780982845929For a writer, this is the kind of review that makes it all worthwhile. Writers by nature are insecure beasts. A review like this gives me fuel to keep on truck’n. Thank you, kind reader!

I grew up in Michigan and always was fascinated by Isle Royale, though I never got there. With this gripping tale I felt like I was in a lighthouse in raging storms, and I was witness to the raging storms of relationships as well. This author tells a great story and pulls the reader into it. I read it during hot Midwestern summer weather but felt like I was shivering in the icy waters of Lake Superior in late fall and winter. A fun read and I’m sure I’ll read it over again. That for me is the mark of a good book.

Isle Royale – A Great Lakes young adult historical thriller

Shipwrecks, gangsters, and the mother of all storms. Living in a lighthouse can be murder.
