Read full description of the books On Parson's Creek:A new teenager in a small, Oregon logging town, Jack Taylor's bored with school and living in his own head. Walking in the forest, he finds dark mysteries in an old-growth cedar grove near his new home. He finds out that the story handed down several generations doesn't really tell the tale completely, nor do tales of lurking giants in the trees, an Indian curse, or the abandoned locomotive deep in the woods. As he asks questions of his teachers and local families, he finds himself pushed more and more into a corner from which there is only one way out. With the reluctant help of a local historian, his Physics teacher, a school friend and an ancient logger almost as old as the trees, he begins to put the clues together. The story unravels a community conspiring to hide the entire truth from the world. But, is that wrong? Maybe the world doesn't need to know. Recommended for older teens 16+
Read information about the authorFrom San Rafael, California on a windy January in 1952, it's been a wild ride. My folks never settled down until long after I'd moved to a cabin I built on a commune in Oregon, but I couldn't sit still -- the wanderlust was in my blood. I hitchhiked to New York City in 1973. There I met my wife on Canal Street and finally found a home.
I learned my craft post-college, spending 20-plus years in the trenches of NYC advertising and publicity as a graphic designer, marker-pen-jockey, art director and copy writer. I served the needs of a wide range of clients from corporate multinationals to non-profits and small retail businesses. I now limit my design and marketing work to book covers and collateral marketing for authors.
Our other family business, since 1985 has been trading and retail in the authentic American Indian arts, primarily Southwestern cultures. Indigenous cultures world wide, have an amazing resilience. We could learn some lessons from them. Much of my work deals with intolerance, diversity and the clash of cultures.
I've worn lots of different hats and hung them all over the place. Finally, I have the chance to concentrate on what I really love about being alive; to read and write what I like, when I like; and to listen to and make the kind of music that gives me peace.
