About the Author

The Captain's Gift is a 3 volume series of short stories that first appeared in Nor'westing Magazine. As the author, one of my fondest childhood memories was in Ketchikan Alaska, playing around the docks fronting my fathers's waterfront office. The sights, sounds, and smells of those waterfront adventures forever branded themselves deep into my soul. While underway for Ketchikan to Seattle, I recieved a gift from an aging steamship Captain. A gift that took fifty years to unfold and finally reveal itself. When it did, my life made a dramatic change because of his simple gesture, that stormy Christmas night, so many years ago, so far out to sea.
