I have been gathering all sorts of documentation to show how working people brought electricity to the Northwest, and then have kept it running.
IBEW #77, the local union that represents many of these workers (since  1897), hired me to write a book about their history. I have, and what a history it is.

I gave a reading in Seattle in December, 2011, at the 266th meeting of Its’s About Time.
My co-readers wwere be Pat Hurshell, Bruce Taylor, and Leisha McIntyre.

I read excerpts from my novel in progress, As Though There Were No Tomorrow, and a couple of short prose pieces from a series I add to erratically. With luck I will soon get a sampling up on this site.
