Nothing wrong with being No. 2, although an article in this week's Methow Valley News speaks to renewed public support for the reintroduction of Grizzlies (Dangerous N.A. Mammal numero Uno!) to the North Cascades. Showdown baby!

6.3.15 - Guest Cartoonist No. 2

Another great comic courtesy of 5th grade guest cartoonist, Stella Gitchos. Looking forward to more comic creativity at both this week's Methow Valley Elementary Young Writer's Conference and throughout the summer in my North Central Regional Library summer reading visits. Write on!

5.27.15 - Guest Cartoonist No. 1

Between finishing my next recent book and coaching at the State Track meet, I'm a little late in posting this week's comic. Lucky for me, it's guest cartoonist week here at Harts Pass :) After a recent Methow Arts residency at the local elementary school, I've put a few kids on the payroll for both this week and next. Kinda like Family Circus... except these kids are the real deal! Much thanks to Isaac Carlsen for this week's excellent unicorn strip.

My daughter asks a LOT of questions. Sometimes so many that I am certainly not this nice about answering them all... Anyway, maybe she gets gets inspired when she feels like she has our full attention. So it goes :)

What? NO WAY! Oh... And so it goes! Despite their purported demise, books are still a great window into an entire world of experiences that most of us will never have. Bring 'em on!
