No! Full Curl is the first in a series that will include at least three books. The second novel, with a working title of “No Place for Wolverines”, will be available in 2018. The third in the series (working title of “In Rhino We Trust”) will be available in 2019. I have at least two more books sketched out beyond that.
I’m a long-time resident of Western Canada, and I’ve traveled extensively through the Pacific Northwest. I love the landscapes, from rich coastal forests to dry ponderosa pine grasslands to the high alpine.
I can’t give away any secrets, not only because I hope you’ll share the journey with me, but because only Jenny knows for sure. She’s always at least a step or two ahead of me. I get the sense that she will travel, perhaps because of a new love interest, and that she and her Parks Canada bosses will have to sort out their differences.
