Big News

The Big News that I have been promising has finally arrived. I have just signed a contract with Reaktion Books in England to write a book on Eagles for their Animal Series.

For a good example of their books go here for Falcon by Helen Macdonald, our beloved Pluvialis, to whom I owe this opportunity. Visit her
Fretmarks
to see a portfolio of her late dad Alisdair's work. They are iconic images and I'll bet you already know some-- I did.

And yes, I intend to keep blogging-- writing begets writing.

I've been trying to think up something subtle, clever and zingy, but it just didn't happen. So I'll just skip that.
Steve, I'm proud of you and I'm glad I know you. You have made good choices.
