Welcome to my website.  I’ll be posting updates here.  Now on the Louisiana Gulf Coast, covering the oil spill for Men’s Journal.  I’ll be back soon.

KOOK: What Surfing Taught Me About Love, Life, and Catching the Perfect Wave

July 13th, Tattered Cover LODO, 7:30 pm
1628 16th St. at Wynkoop
Reading and Signing

Bring friends.  Let’s pack the house on a summer night.

Publisher’s Weekly just gave it a Starred Review.  Called it “Gripping”, “A powerful memoir”, “About love”.  Hudson News is featuring it in its Summer Reading Promotion at airports across the country.  Pam Houston wrote, “a deeply impassioned stand on behalf of marine-life, and of all life. Kook makes the dangerously unhip suggestion that it is still possible to find meaning–even transcendence–in the ever diminishing natural world.”

I’ll be having a drink at the Wynkoop Brewing Company afterward, upstairs at the billiard room bar, for all who wish to join me.

For those in Boulder, come to:

Boulder Bookstore
Pearl Street Mall
July 15th, 7:30
