New Book Coming!


By December (if all goes well — I have my fingers crossed) I will have a new book out in the Golden State Biographies series for young readers. The new book will be about Peter Lassen, the enterprising immigrant from Denmark, who gave his name to a county, a national park, and an active volcano.

“Stunning” Steve Ferchaud has completed the illustrations, and everything is in the hands of Carla Resnick, my neighborhood graphic designer. Here are a few of Steve’s pictures to whet your appetite.

Peter dreams of the legendary Gold Lake, where nuggets of gold lay on the shore, ready to be picked up.
