Do the perils of Siberia

and the antics of pet wolves

intrigue you?


What about a photographer who must chase her escaped pup into a herd of bison against all good sense?

Do you long to see a young sculptor

dragged through a decorative fountain

by a 150 pound dog?


Would you like to witness a purse dog bravely trekking  across a glacier?

Have you imagined what might befall

a bridal designer and taxidermist

who must preserve a deceased cat

in a pleasing and artistic manner while

handcuffed and chased by villains?


What a coincidence, me too!

“One of the best books I’ve ever read. I haven’t laughed so hard over a book in eons—if ever. Thank you for the pleasure and enjoyment of your fine writing.”

— Marilyn Rhoads, Cascade Contest Co-Chair and OCW President concerning Athens Ambuscade

“When a free-spirited photographer and her dog clash with a rule-obsessed park ranger, you know they’re in for trouble–but the romance that follows is an absolute delight. With Yellowstone Yondering, Kristen Joy Wilks has woven a fantastical romp through Yellowstone National Park that’s not to be missed.”

–Karen Barnett, award-winning author of the Vintage National Park Series.

“Take a walk on the wild side. Well as wild as a mathematically minded teacher can be. Spider Gap is a sweet romance full of adventure and humor. Add in some sixth graders, a purse-sized dog, and a hunky trail guide and the fun never stops as two very different people find a way to meet in the middle.”

 – Cynthia Hickey, author of The Shady Acres Mystery series.
