Reviews

A beautifully told story with colorful characters out of epic tradition, a tight and complex plot, and solid pacing. -- Booklist, starred review of On the Razor's Edge

Great writing, vivid scenarios, and thoughtful commentary ... the stories will linger after the last page is turned. -- Publisher's Weekly, on Captive Dreams

Sometimes You Learn That You Did Something Right

Learned today that my son up at Univ. Alaska - Anchorage saw a native man attempt suicide by swallowing a bunch of pills out on the street.  He called 911 and then stayed with and encouraged the man until help came.  (While other good Samaritans diverted car traffic around them.)  

Sometimes you wonder if you were a good enough father, and then you get proof.  Well done, Dennis.  We are proud of you.

  2. Good on Dennis, I am a fellow student here and if he'd like to meet fellow students who can show him around, (I grew up here)I'd be happy to. I can be reached by email in post
