Novels & Short Stories
Lizard Blue, a novel
Lizard Blue is a novel, set mostly in Europe, where love and meaning can't quite reconcile.
Drifting through a life grown dreary, a man encounters a younger woman. In a glance, she restores the heat, hunger, and hopefulness of youth. Meeting again, as if by chance, they stumble over the differences between them, like age, mobility, and need. They set off for Europe, to scratch each other’s back, but the itch lingers. Agreeing to part, briefly, to refresh, she heads south to see an old friend, as he stays north, alone.
Whirlaway, a novel
"A daring look behind the scenes of tourism in Hawaii. Passages depicting open-sea crossings are vivid, and the cameos of mainland tourists are dead-on."—Publishers Weekly
As a Maui County Library Hot Pick and Beach Book of the Month Club Main Selection, Whirlaway resounds among charter crews.
NOTE: PG 17, this one, so fasten your seatbelts & prepare for heavy weather. We're going in. Not for the faint-hearted of any age.
