I have been talking about finishing my first novel since Red Step Press published my first creative nonfiction book "Overburden: Modern Life on the Iron Range" in late 2008. Since then "Overburden" won the Northeastern Minnesota Book Award and has received excellent notices. There is no better time to complete and sell my novel. This blog is a huge time commitment and also draws all important creative energy to make news of Iron Range mining, media and backroom politics more readable. That energy, for a few months, will be dedicated to the novel. I hope to write a story that explores the greatness, the weakness, and humor of living in a place like the Iron Range.
You can still visit this site to read my weekly columns and promos for my radio work on KAXE. If major news happens I might say a thing or two. Consider subscribing to the blog to be among the first to know when I post something, and when I return to the daily fray -- most likely in time for next year's political battles.
