When mysterious stranger, Dieter, arrives in the historic town of Crooked River, the residents take notice. Deckhands, bartenders and shopkeepers befriend him, and the charming but hesitant Maggie Paterson falls in love. Teddy Mink, the town’s notorious and often paranoid drug runner, is convinced that he’s threatening his livelihood as a narc, making Dieter’s arrival to Crooked River more conspicuous than he’d hoped.   

A beautifully written story that takes you from the moonlit beaches of Quintana Roo to the historic town of Crooked River, Florida, Fever Tree is a story about grief and loss, but ultimately healing & finding your way again.

His poems, essays, and short fiction appear in the Florida Review, The South Dakota Review, Lake Effect, and The Briar Cliff Review among many others.

He lives in the foothills of the coastal range of western Oregon cats.
