A spur-of-the-moment road trip by the O’Malleys thrusts them into the middle of familial revenge and chaos. From the vineyards of Walla Walla to the pastoral quietude of Whidbey Island, the husband-and-wife team ends up defending their friends against a pair of unlikely, but lethal adversaries.
Somehow, someway the O’Malleys have found themselves in the thick of things once again. On peaceful, bucolic Whidbey Island, they become entangled in a corporate plot to stifle a paradigm-shattering discovery, one that promises to upend conventional thinking, topple markets, and create an entirely new industry.
TEED UP FOR TERROR
Jewel thieves, hero dogs, white separatists and interior designers make for a tongue in cheek tale of murder and mayhem among the members of a not so exclusive country club.The story, sarcastic and irreverent at times, revolves around interior designers Kevin and Jenne O’Malley who seem to have a knack for attracting trouble.
When we sold our interior design firm in 2018 after twenty-three years in business, I found I had a little time on my hands.
I thought it might be fun to tell some of the stories and experiences I had, first as a kid and later on during my business career. The blog entries are all actual events; the books maybe not so much.
My wife and I spent a couple of years in Southern Utah before moving back to the Northwest, to Whidbey Island; both are the locations for Little Dirt Road. The south end of the island is a quiet, pastoral place that we thoroughly enjoy.
The characters in my books are purely fictional, with any similarities being unintentional. However, the names may or may not be the names of actual people. Sometimes I sneak a few in there.
The O’Malleys are a fictional couple, but I’d be lying if I didn’t say that, once in a while, a scene or two seems all too familiar.
Punch Down is the latest; I hope you enjoy it.
