--On the side of a dark and desolate Oregon coast road, Thomas James stood by himself hidden in the shadows. Alone and lost in thought, he felt detached. He eventually crumpled to the ground, his legs giving way beneath his large frame. The previous few hours were replaying in his mind like a bad movie. About two hours prior, he got a phone call from the county police. It took him barely five minutes to get to the accident…she was almost home.--
Set against the unpredictable Pacific Ocean, on the rocky, forested northern coast of Oregon is a story about heartbreaking loss, rebuilding, fate and love. Running Northwest takes the reader on a journey as an unexpected road weaves its way through the life of single father, Thomas James and his 8-year-old son, Daniel. In Michigan, newly single Stephanie Davis is about to begin her own journey down a path she never expected and never even knew existed which will change her life in ways never imagined.
This book had everything I love in a good read! Emotion, romance, suspense, drama... I could go on. I absolutely fell in love with the characters, right from the beginning. They are all very likable and relate-able. I will be reading Running Northwest again, I could not put it down!

This is the all new 4th edition of Running Northwest that replaces the one which has recently been on sale via Barnes and Noble for Nook. Due to a computer glitch with B&N customers were receiving the wrong version.
Michael now considers the Oregon coast his second home even while currently living in Michigan and goes back as often as he can and hopes to move there permanently again eventually. He has always tried to live his life on his own terms, to be different and never settle. Michel tries his best to take the road less traveled while seeking his own version of happiness. More often than not, his gut drives his life and he does what he feels is right, and rarely what others say. This inner spirit and attitude has served him well giving him success in different fields and the courage to choose writing as a career and search for more adventures in life.
Michael while currently living in Michigan is attending Grand Valley State University and earning a BA in Writing and focusing on creative writing. In his spare time when he has it, he spends time with his friends usually drinking copious amounts of coffee and enjoys hiking and spending time in nature doing various things. He is expecting his first child, a boy, in July 2014.
