Communiqué from the Mountain State Ecological Front:

Wood Garrett has a problem. A disgraced reporter hiding in the mountains of his native West Virginia, he finds his peaceful life shattered when someone who wants his land tries to frame him for murder to get it. Before he knows it, his friends have been drawn into the trouble, and he has to take up the fight to save their lives. He quickly finds himself in a battle that involves corrupt chicken farmers, crooked cops, hired killers, tabloid TV reporters, fake ecoterrorists, and very hungry bears.

A native of West Virginia, Gary Clites is a teacher, writer, and journalist living in Chesapeake Beach, Maryland. While he was a student at West Virginia University, the college's scuba team discovered a body in nearby Cheat Lake. The police eventually determined that criminals had been using a backwater of the lake as a dumping ground for illegal materials for years. That experience served as inspiration for his first novel, Seneca Wood. His website can be found at www.garyclites.com.
