The Story Behind This Book
With Riverside Blues, I wanted to write something that wasn’t premeditated. It started with a simple image as I sat behind my house at dusk looking at the edge of the woods: a woman walking out from the trees.

Praise and Reviews

A dark and deeply felt gem from a writer well worth watching." — Chet Williamson
