Walking Through Brambles covers a year-in-the-life of a self-proclaimed middle-aged, mainstream exile as he re-discovers himself and builds a new life in a small coastal town in southern Oregon.

Adam Moore reveals an environment that is bucolic and an ethos that is perplexing but warm as he learns his way around his new town, meets his neighbors, and copes with his fantasies around the mysterious woman who lived in his house before him.

As Adam seeks counsel from his cat and other inhabitants of Valencia, he invents histories of strangers while he recovers from a loneliness masked with insight and humor, finding peace at last.

About the Author

G. W. is a semi-retired tech-writer and web developer, and one of those rare English majors who didn't go to law school. Instead, he focused on developing his writing style and reading just about anything he could get his hands on. Originally from Corpus Christi, Texas, he's lived in Indiana, Utah, and Seattle, Washington. A heart-and-soul Seattlite currently living in Oakland, California, he spends his spare time with his two Schnoodles running around every dog park in the city. For the last twenty years, he's been writing user manuals, developing websites, and writing books of poetry, short stories, and a novella on its way to becoming a 'real novel.' He has an amazing daughter, an artist, and writer herself, who lives in Texas. You can follow his work on: http://thefogandwave.com or on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/gwlatimer
