A Leaf On The Wind Of All Hallows


Purchase the Book

“A Leaf on the Wind of All Hallows” is a short story (no, really. It is. Honest! It’s 16,500 words, about). It tells the WWII story of Roger MacKenzie’s parents, Jerry and Dolly — and provides and fills in the answer to one of the small mysteries opened in AN ECHO IN THE BONE. (Though as one astute observer commented, “I bet you filled it in with dirt you dug from another hole!”)

This story was released as a standalone ebook in formats for iPad, iPod, iBooks, iPhone, Kindle, and Nook on December 3, 2012. A narrated version is also available. Please use the pull-down menus at left to order.
