Larry lives in Eastern Oregon with a beautiful wife, a very strange cat, and surrounded by four seasons of glorious nature, except for the damned midges. A number of other writing projects are in the plans, including novels on time travel, a near future dystopia, a nature fantasy about life in a tide pool and adjacent beach, and additional articles on the history and culture of the Land of the Lakes (southern Oregon, northeastern California, northwestern Nevada, and southwestern Idaho).
