My story, The Ravages of March: A Far-Flung Family Struck by Floods, appears in the May 2017 issue of Idaho Magazine.

Unfortunately, they declined this one, stating, “I don’t like the word “racist” used on my blog to label anyone unless someone is a card-carrying, Richard butler-type racist — dfo.” C’est la vie.
My city spotlight on Elk River appears in the October edition of IDAHO Magazine. While completing research and writing this story I had the pleasure of being serenaded by Forrest “Babe” Kreisher. I loved the song and his spunk.
The song is worth of sharing, so here it is:
The Reverse Burglars is featured in this month’s edition of IDAHO Magazine.
This is the first time art work has been commissioned for one of my stories, so I’m pretty excited about that and I’m pleased with what was produced (at left). To read the story, purchase a copy of Idaho Magazine here.
