What is your latest release and what genre is it? A novel called Every Blade of Grass. I like to call it an eco-romance, since there’s romance in it as well as environmental thoughts.

Quick description: James Wheeler and Martha Geddes meet at an environmental conference in Iceland and discover a mutual love for strange and wondrous facts about nature. For years they share their discoveries by letter, never meeting but drawing closer through words. When tragedy strikes, words at a distant may not be enough to help a friend back from the darkness.
