If you enjoy the work of Garrison Keillor, Tom Bodett, Jean Shepherd or Patrick McManus you'll find yourself at home in McKinleyville.

  The first "Tales" book, Big Doin's At The Chinese Baptist Church is a humor novel that has been compared to the work of Garrison Keillor, Tom Bodett, Jean Shepherd and Patrick McManus. It contains three interrelated stories about Huckleberry Puhzz, all-American;


The first story is Big Doin's At The Chinese Baptist Church, in which we are introduced to Huck, his brother Bubba, and follow events as certain individuals attempt the daring theft of a neighboring community's statue of a doomed President. In the second story, The Return Of The Teapot Dome, Huck runs for mayor of McKinleyville, the town's black widow (and current mayor) stalks new prey, and the use of frying pans in disciplining children is strictly discouraged.  And in the third, The Marriage Proposal, Huck receives love letters from Hollywood and the whereabouts of the town's most notorious vandal (and Huck's former best friend) Hunsey Bourcarte are finally revealed. This is a book that will keep you laughing from the first page until the last!
 
 
A companion volume, Tales of Placerville: Booksellers to the Savage West, was published in October, 2011.
Excerpt
"Wheel of Fortune, please tell me what to do," Huck said, and then he gave the massive disc a mad yank, letting his fate spin with the Wheel. The flippers snapped on the pegs that bordered the Wheel's edge and then the click-click-click-click-clicks slowly diminished and it lost speed. Huck watched the space below the big red arrow with anticipation. With a soft bounce (that almost snapped the Wheel over to "Double Bonus Round") it settled on a space. Huck read the result aloud to Whizzer.
"Lose Your Turn."
Although Huck had never been "fast on his feet," he figured you couldn't very well argue with the Wheel Of Fortune. The jig was up. The coppers had caught up with him. And Vanna had spoken. Oh, he wasn't just going to give himself up and do hard time in the joint. No, he was going to negotiate. He had seen it a hundred times on Law & Order and Court TV. The accused gave up something, like a hostage, and then the D.A. gave him time off for good behavior or something like that. Huck figured a little horse trading might lower the heat.
"Take the emu!" he cried out, still ducking behind the trailer door.
