Itchy Donner doesnít have much going for him. A rashy eleven-year-old growing up fatherless in a dying backwoods Idaho timber town, Itchy is obsessed with the past-specifically, his familyís past. Itchyís the great-great-great grandson of Tamsen Donner, the Donner Partyís famous matriarch, and Itchy studies his ancestorís history with the relentlessness that only a true nerd can muster. He and his mother Irene live poor but happy in a ramshackle singlewide, and Irene encourages Itchyís interest and pride in his illustrious ancestors. But their predictable lives are forever turned upside-down when the wandering gyppo logger Red Donner-Itchyís blustery, larger-than-life father-blows back into town looking to make amends for his past and put his family back together again. ITCHY DONNER is a tragi-comic tale of liars and dreamers, of the distant Donner ghosts who haunt Itchyís present, and of Itchyís quest to understand the past, know his father, and make his family whole again.
The slender framed boy stood and watched the beetle crawl across the rotted body of a dead cat. The wind gently ruffled his short black hair. He picked up a stick and poked at it. More beetles swarmed out of its body cavity. The English summer sun gently shined down on him causing a small bead of sweat to appear on his lip. Edan sat down beside the dead animal. Fascinated, he pushed one of its eyelids up and tried to pop out the catís glazed over eye.
Just Passing Through
I believe there comes a time in every manís life when he needs to stop what heís doing and take a good look at the choices heís made and the direction in life those choices take him. Ultimately, bad choices will lead you down the wrong path in life ó nearly every time. Though sometimes, no matter how hard you try to make the right choices, fate still finds a way to somehow make you regret it. I discovered this as I lay bound by wrists and ankles in the trunk of a cherry red 1963 Corvette convertible, somewhere on Route 322 in Pennsylvania.

Meet Nick Stone. The highlight of Nickís day had always been smoking Jane, drinking beer, and causing trouble. Usually all at the same time. But that all changed when Dad woke up with a dead stripper in his bed. This story promises to offend you, insult you and entertain you, all at the same time. In Odd-Jobs, the author holds blatant contempt for literary merit, and the result comes off a little like Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.
In a slightly alternate world the minds of teen offenders are uploaded into computers for rehabilitation ó a form of virtual wilderness therapy. Zach is a homo cognoscens, one of the new humans with startling but as yet poorly understood cognitive abilities who can enter the virtual Fulgrid. Though still a high school student, he is indentured to the Fulgur Corporation as a counsellor. Laura is a homo sapiens. They meet and fall in love across barriers of fear and hatred, exacerbated by Zachís growing involvement with an underground political movement. There is some mystery as to the fate of his parents, while Lauraís dad is a prominent neuroscientist with the Fulgur Corporation. Lines of loyalty are difficult to untangle, particularly because both have suffered a certain measure of emotional trauma in their early lives. From the very first chapters there is a sense of impending tragedy.
Easier For A Camel
Easier for a camel is a mystery novel based on the authorís experiences in South Africa. The events were so strange that few people would believe them. When presented as fact, the authorís wife said, ĎYou missed your vocation, you should have been a writer of fiction.í Rewritten as fiction and presented to her as such, she said, ĎThe trouble with it is it is not fiction, itís revenge.í This version is a mixture of fact and fiction, mostly the latter. The reader may distinguish between the two, bearing in mind that fact is stranger than fiction. It is a Christian novel that shows up much of the sham in conventional Christianity.
