Scenes from a Book Signing: Chico Costco

Having grown up near Chico and graduated from Chico State, I always enjoy coming back to my old stomping grounds. Last week’s successful book signing at the Chico Costco made this occasion extra special: I was able to visit with classmates I hadn’t seen since high school and make a passel of new friends. Kathy and I had a great time and thought we’d share our experience by posting a few photographs.

I recently had the pleasure of being a guest on the popular National Public Radio program Nancy’s Bookshelf. What an honor to be interviewed by one of radio’s finest and most professional hosts, Nancy Wiegman.  I invite all my friends to listen to the interview this Friday morning, April 15, at 10:00 a.m., on KFPR in Redding (88.9 FM) or KCHO in Chico (91.7 FM). You can also listen to the broadcast live or play it at your convenience by going to mynspr.org.

2016 Book Tour Off to a Great Start

My 2016 book tour got off to a fantastic start last Saturday, with a sell-out book signing at the Nor-Cal Boat, Sport and RV Show. In spite of stormy weather, readers came from all over Northern California to pick up a signed copy of my recently released book, The Game Warden’s Son. Kathy and I had a ball, visiting with friends—old and new—from as far away as Orland, Chico, Old Station, and the Bay Area.

Last night I had the pleasure and privilege of giving a presentation to a packed house of Wintu Audubon Society members. In addition to discussing my current book and the upcoming sequel, The Game Warden’s Son—A Half Century of Protecting California’s Wildlife, we shared ideas about how our natural resources might be better protected. One of the suggestions for helping to finance more wardens in the field was a voluntary wildlife stamp for people who bird watch, hike, and enjoy nature’s wonders but don’t necessarily hunt or fish. This is an excellent idea, in my opinion, and one that would find favor, I believe, with sportsmen, nature enthusiasts, and game wardens alike.
