“Humans are imperfect fabrications, often nasty as wolverines even when their bellies are full. They are angry with each other in ways that mystify every Presence here … You must have missed an essential lyric in their Creation Song. Do something!”
And so, the humanoid spirit Cascadia is created by First Female to find the problem with people and clean up what the gods have screwed up. THE SLIGHTLY ALTERED HISTORY OF CASCADIA is a quick-witted quest through history, mythology and modern day ills.
To prepare her for life among humans, Cascadia is first trained in the use of lust by the hot goddess Helen of Troy and in the art of the knife by Jim Bowie. In time, other gods and historic humans teach her additional emotional and physical skills. Along with the help of her human familiar, a magic blade, a flying bear and a logging horse named Blue, Cascadia takes on a serial killer, ends the traffic in bear gall bladders, and leads a war in the woods to end the slavery that one survivalist group is inflicting on others. The book concludes with Cascadia’s plan for a better kind of human. Will the gods agree or scrap the whole damn planet?

THE EARLY YEARS I won my first creative contest in the sixth grade for my Clean Up Fix Up Paint Up poster. This started a career that even a Phi Beta Kappa and B.A. from Michigan State University could not derail.
THE CAREER YEARS My first book was a non-fiction book, The Great Lakes: North America’s Inland Sea, published by Outdoor World. The publisher is long since defunct, and the book appears, naked and alone, on eBay or Amazon every now and again. From this experience I learned how little an author could make. Consequently, I turned to an advertising career in Chicago. I learned it not only pays to advertise, it pays to write it, too. Eventually I left Chicago, trading in my snow boots for rain boots, and moved to the wilds of the Pacific Northwest. My Maltese Dotty dreams of sunny islands, but she has acclimated to a wet tummy from walks in the woods.
THE NOW YEARS Now that I represent the older but wiser end of the baby boomer years, I am concentrating on writing fiction. My novels tend toward dark subjects handled in a light tone to give them hope. Seven are now available as Kindle Select ebooks at Amazon.com. They are:
Fun House Chronicles (also available as a paperback)
Lessons of Evil
A Time of Secrets
Bear in Mind, Mystery #1
Hard to Bear, Mystery #2
Bear at Sea, Mystery #3 (The whole Bear mystery series is on sale now as ebooks and also available in print)
The Slightly Altered History of Cascadia
