Stowaway. When Karin Myre, a Norwegian seamstress's assistant, catches the excitement of the Klondike Gold Rush, she decides to head north, but how? Impulsively, she sneaks on board one of the dozens of ships in Seattle's harbor only to find herself trapped in the cargo hold with a host of second thoughts. But her rescue from the captain and a fate worse than death by a determined young prospector begins her honest search for true gold.
About the Author
"A GRAND yarn you can't put down." Janet Chapple, author of Yellowstone Treasures, on Repeating History. "The details paint a word picture so vivid that readers can see the story play out in their minds." Steve Dunkelberger, Tacoma Weekly, on True Gold. I am fascinated by the possibilities of what if. The memories of place that some people call ghosts, the möbius effect of time travel. You won't find vampires or werewolves in my books, I'm afraid. Or horror. I am more interested in the potential effects of the fantastic on normal folks, and in inserting it into well-researched historical events, populated mostly by people who really lived. I'm also an avid student of the road, and Cross-Country will not be my last travel adventure book.
