Montana Quarterly Magazine Review for Brittle Silver


I am excited and honored that my novel, Brittle Silver, is reviewed in the current issue of the Montana Quarterly Magazine. I am also delighted to announce that Brittle Silver is now available at Wheatgrass Books in Livingston, Montana. The Montana Quarterly reviewer reflects on Vic Keegan’s travel back in time to Granite and Philipsburg of 1893, during the Great Silver Panic. Along with Brittle Silver’s review are reviews of books from other Montana authors, as well as the Quarterly’s typical tantalizing and insightful articles highlighting Montana and the people of the Big Sky landscapes. The photography is a stunning addition to the stories. I am looking forward to more engaging interactions with readers and writers of all ages in the coming months. #MontanaQuarterly #WheatgrassBooks #BrittleSilver #Philipsburg #Montana

Barnes & Noble Book Signing

Come join the fun and discussion at my Book Signing for Brittle Silver at Barnes & Noble, 2825 W. Main St., Bozeman, Montana on Saturday, January 28th from Noon to 2 PM! A few of my research and writing sources and tools from creating Brittle Silver will be available to view. Please stop by to have a book signed or to visit a bit. I will be signing copies of Brittle Silver, a time travel novel set in 1893 Granite and Philipsburg, Montana during the Great Silver Panic, and also copies of my first novel, We Are the Warriors, a 2015 USA Regional Excellence Book Award Finalist. 

We Are the Warriors is about a young snowboarder who moves to a fictitious reservation in Eastern Montana when his father is hired as the high school principal. We Are the Warriors dives into the mix of cultures, microcultures, and the challenges and gifts that these create, all within the amazing landscapes of Eastern Montana.

Brittle Silver invites the reader to experience the very real mining town of Granite, Montana, high in the Flint Creek Mountains. Here, Vic Keegan, from 125 years in the future, discovers the rugged, yet cultured life of miners, business owners and townspeople, a lifestyle that will soon implode with the growing Silver Panic. Her affection for Jago Pendarvis, the young Cornish miner, only complicates her shrewd deception. In this explosive atmosphere, Vic must face her fears and learn who to trust.

Age-old stories of love and loss come alive in this rich tale intricately woven with the real people and happenings in Granite and Philipsburg, Montana during the 1890s.

After all the dedication to research and writing craft for years, it is affirming and delightful to have the generous and friendly support of local bookstore owners and managers.
