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.

The Lolo Peak Fire

This image was captured at 11:30 last night, from Missoula, Montana.

The Lolo Peak fire has been a monster from the beginning, and shows no signs of slowing down. For most of July and August, it burned in the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness and adjacent national forest land. But now it’s burning down the ridge, towards Highway 93.

Lolo Peak fire, August 16th

Taken from my house, around 8 pm. We’re going through a wicked fire season here in western Montana, trigged by a record-setting fifty days of no measurable rain.

Currently, there are evacuations for parts of Lolo and Florence.

In any season, Montana brings challenges. It is still however, the most beautiful place in the world.
