The Raley Book Store


BrandonROY_FrCov_loresReleased in 2013, The BRANDON ROY STORY is my third book published in the past four years, along with TIDEFLATS TO TOMORROW and PITCHERS OF BEER. Roy is the greatest homegrown basketball player to emerge from Seattle, someone who became one of the NBA’s brightest stars before his bad knees got in the way. TIideflats to Tomorrow is a funky tale about half of downtown Seattle. Pitchers of Beer is a baseball opus, a mini-Ball Four and well received nationally. Each book is available for $20 plus mailing costs by emailing me at or, or messaging me on Facebook.¬†Sorry, we had to remove the comments section here because of a relentless spammer attack.
