(formerly “The Final Cruise”) is now available at Amazon:
This is my first full length book, my first novel.
Although I have written many news stories, it is exciting to be able to add to the list of accomplishments that magical word: novelist. Now all I need to do is get the word out, and I hope that you, my reader, will help me with this, and if you do, I will be forever grateful.
Thank you for reading or reviewing the book and making my joy complete.
That’s it. Enjoy your reading.

Writing awards: I was honored with eight awards through the Oregon National Newspaper Association.
Life Experiences: Include serving aboard ship (USS Los Angeles CA-135 and USS Frontier AD-25) in the US Navy, setting chokers as a logger, delivering milk house to house, repairing photocopiers, and many others.

In November 2016, I became involved with organizing a new political party for our region. Green Party of the Mid-Columbia is recognized by Washington Greens and is responsible for evangelizing in five Washington counties: Benton, Franklin, Walla-Walla, Yakima, and Klickitat.
Update as of April 25, 2021: With the events of Covid-19 beginning in 2020, my life changed considerably. I had retired and ceased working on novels (although I may start on another one in the future). Most of my time has been consumed with landscaping our half-acre on Rachel Road in Kennewick, Washington. Green Party activities have been mostly on hold and most of that has been turned over to younger folk. My wife Laura and I have been dealing with some aches and pains of older age, but still fairly active. To backtrack a bit, in 2003 my guitar buddy Richard Broker died. Jeannie Lockwood, my wife of 38 years, passed away in 2004. I married Laura in 2008.
