i write. i make up stuff. i adventure hard, so you don’t have to.
Along with my brother-in-law Tim, I have hiked hundreds of trail miles and climbed many mountains. It’s where I get inspired for many of my story ideas and exotic settings.
Two years ago, as a gift for special friends and family members, we produced a calendar of photos and stories about our experiences in the mountains. For 2011, we’ve done another one, this time focusing on our adventures in the rugged and beautiful deserts of the American Southwest—Death Valley, Canyonlands, Arches, Great Sand Dunes, Joshua Tree, Grand Canyon, and other locations.
We decided to make a few extra copies of the calendar available to fans. Each month features an original inspirational anecdote of our experiences in the arid lands, written either by Kevin or Tim. All of the photographs are our own.
Quantities are limited, and will ship out within a week. The calendar is full-sized, with high-quality printing on heavy paper. If you’re interested in seeing some of the spectacular settings that have sparked scenes in my novels, I hope you’ll consider ordering your own copy of Life Lessons from the Desert.
