Hey, anyone within shouting distance of Steamboat Springs can come by this next Sunday for my book-signing session at Off The Beaten Path Bookstore on 9th Street, just off Lincoln Avenue. Ron and his staff have been very generous to give me this local meet and greet opportunity. If you’re familiar with Steamboat you know the bookstore so come on by. If you’re a visitor (or will be someday), check them out at http://www.steamboatbooks.com/.

You’ve also picked up that I like to take on contemporary issues in my novels, issues that should be of concern to all of us. That’s important to me. While I have great respect for the many talented writers who produce the galvanizing mysteries and thrillers we all like to read into the night, I rarely find one that does more than entertain. I’m trying to hit the entertainment part hard, but also add an important dimension to my writing, something more than simply holding you in suspense as the plot unfolds. That dimension is to awaken your interest in a social problem in our society, and provoke a bit more concern about it than you may have had before.
That’s my cabin, below, right after a good snowstorm last winter. Later is not shown, must have been too hot for him that day. Those of you who read Brutal Devotion will recall how Elijah Garmish tried to torch the place one Spring night. Also below is a panorama of Lincoln Avenue, the main street of Steamboat Springs. It may give you an idea of our little town, if you’ve never been here. By the way, my psychotherapy office is along the left side, two blocks down.
