We all have baggage. Real friends help you carry it.
It’s 1983 in Boscobel, Wisconsin, in the southwestern corner of the state, known as the Driftless Area. Ellis Sayre is different. He’s a twelve year old orphaned Native American. His adoptive parents lost a son a few years ago and welcomed him to deal with their grief. While stealing day-old bread for a friend in need, Ellis and his two best friends—George and Mason—witness a murder by a local kingpin. Authorities disagree with their story. They call it made up. The boys are trapped, worried for their lives, sending them on a flight to Grandad’s Bluff in La Crosse, WI, along the Mississippi River. Two peripheral stories about Ellis Abbot—a World War II veteran, and Two Right Feet—an orphaned Native American during early 1800’s, are entwined to unearth Ellis Sayre’s roots. They combine to tell the truth.
- I really enjoyed this book, there was mystery, there was confusion, there were surprises and there was a heartwarming account of friendship and what it is to be there for someone. It's brilliant and especially cosy to read this time of year!

Are the use and distribution of illicit drugs a part of your
school’s culture? The answer, unfortunately, is yes. At
some level, drug abuse and the dealing of drugs are a part
of all secondary schools. As a school principal I face and
address many challenges and problems, but for any
principal, safety is a priority. Drug abuse among students
brings the problem of drug use and distribution directly
into the school and affects the health, well-being and
safety of all students. I wrote Snowballs and Sinners in
the aftermath of addressing a school-wide drug
infestation. Although the thriller, Snowballs and
Sinners, is fiction, the story is based on actual events
and on real people. The story chronicles activities at a
typical, suburban school and provides a glimpse into
the drug subculture present in our schools today.
