I moved to Astoria, Oregon, in 2002 and immediately set out to buy a book on its vast history. To my surprise, I discovered that no such book had been written. So I decided to write it myself.
“Astoria: An Oregon History” was published in 2008 by The Local History Company in Pittsburgh PA. The book was well-received locally and sold out in a matter of months. Unfortunately, my publisher fell on hard times and was unable to keep the book in print.
In 2010, I established Rivertide Publishing, my history book was back, and my second book, “A is for Astoria," was published. I had so much fun creating “A is for Astoria,” that I decided to do a similar book about Sunriver, Oregon. “S is for Sunriver” was published in 2014.
Since then, I have been busy assisting others with their own book projects. Some are available for sale (listed on this website), and others are personal memoirs to be given away to family and friends.
