2019 INTERNATIONAL BOOK AWARDS!

Hi All, It’s a beautiful summer here, in the 70s, and we’ve had a lot of rain. The buffalo are so happy wading around in deep grass and wildflowers. Just wanted to let you know that the INTERNATIONAL BOOK AWARDS were announced yesterday and Kathleen’s book, MAZE MASTER, won the award for best SCIENCE FICTION NOVEL. Interestingly, it was also a finalist in the best thriller category! We are especially grateful for all the hard work of the judges. They had over 2,000 entries in the competition. Hope you are all doing well. Michael and Kathleen

Beautiful morning…

Hi All, It’s a beautiful morning in northern Wyoming. Sunlight has just hit the rim of Red Canyon, turning the sandstone from deep red to bright red. The ledges are all frosted with snow, so the color contrast is stunning. We have a flock of pinyon jays sailing around the house, waiting for us to fill the bird feeders–which is our next task. Then we are off to work on PEOPLE OF THE CANYONS and UNRECONCILED (the 4th book in the Donovan series). Hope you are all healthy and happy! Mike and Kathy

Still summer, but not for long…

We took the dogs for a walk at 4:00 AM this morning, and the sky was stunning. Orion, The Hand constellation in the Southeastern Ceremonial tradition, was blazing just over the mountain. Now, we are off to work on PEOPLE OF THE CANYONS.

New Books coming…

Hi All!

It’s been a busy August for us here in Wyoming. We turned in the final manuscript for STAR PATH, the latest book in the People of Cahokia series, and Kathleen also delivered the final manuscripts for the first books in her two new series: THE ICE LION, book 1 of the Rewinding Chronicles, and CRIES FROM THE LAST ISLAND, Book 1 of the Ancient Egypt Saga.

THE ICE LION is a science fiction novel set in a Pleistocene Ice Age future, and CRIES FROM THE LOST ISLAND is a fantasy novel set in modern America and Egypt about two teenage boys searching for the lost graves of Antony and Cleopatra.

It’s a real joy to be able to write very different kinds of archaeological stories. Keeps our creativity fresh and vibrant.

The bison are doing exceptionally well. We’ve had good rain this year, which means the grasses and wildflowers have been beautiful.

We hope you’ve all had a wonderful summer.

Michael and Kathleen
