The Bitterroot National Forest

Earlier in the summer, well before the smoke and fires, I was fortunate to spend a glorious day in the Bitterroot National Forest. This 1.587 million acre national forest straddles the Montana/Idaho border, culminating in the spectacular 10,157 foot Trapper Peak.

Most people visit Montana because of Glacier National Park and Yellowstone National Park. But I find the Bitterroots to be just as scenic. It’s likely the range would be a national park, if not for the other two.

The Invasive 2: Remnants is out

Hey everyone,

Things are crazy out here in western Montana. Fires are blowing up all over the place. There is good news, however. “The Invasive 2: Remnants” is out! The novel once again takes place in Montana, and features the same cast of characters from the popular “The Invasive”. I had a lot of fun writing the sequel, and I’m glad it’s finally out.

You can grab a copy of the novel here.
