The perfect Christmas present for your favorite bibliophile...

Have a friend/lover/enemy-you-want-to-make-amends-with who loves books?

Why not pick up a copy of my second novel, POUNDERS?

POUNDERS tells the story of a pair of brothers who venture into the wilderness of northern Canada for what the BBC has called one of the toughest jobs on the planet.

Josh Barkey has done that with Pounders..."
