About the Author
Joe McCray is seventy years old. Some might think this is an age where one really shouldn't be launching a writing career. But maybe it's a better time. His has been a long life -- a long, eventful, and revealing life. Maybe others could have come across what he did without living it, but, if that is so, there seems to be a value in actually doing it. His most important years were spent in San Francisco -- forty of them. The center of those years was his thirty-four years as a practicing trial lawyer, beginning April Fool's Day, 1971, and ending in January of 2005. It was on the latter date that the California State Bar placed him on "inactive" status. At that point, he and his wife returned to the Portland, Oregon, area, where they had attended high school. There, they took over a failing little farm and took to raising two Labrador pups. Finding farming very hard and hunting season short, he began to spend some time mulling over and writing about his practice as fiction. After all, being in San Francisco from 1965 until 2005 was like trying to enjoy a good bottle of wine and some pasta in the middle of a battlefield.

BUT THIS BOOK IS AWESOME, and it takes us back in time to his main character, DD, growing up a teen in Montana. Tense, rich in description, jumps right into the action...even the dialogue is brisk...edgy yet perfectly natural at the same time. That's refreshing! I can't wait to get my copy :)Elusive WisdomThe Wisdom of Rain (Volume 1)Murder at the Thorn Tree Hotel
