Image from my new young adult novel, The Mystery of the Greaser Hotel, due out soon. A girl, a magical cat, a domestic diva, and a retired economics professor team up against two malevolent robber barons, cruel Oda Friendly, and a roadhouse full of meat packers in a strangely funny, oddly sad, blisteringly thrilling little parable.

Calvert veering past ships

Daniel and Calvert dodging a ship-of-the-line as it bombards Fort McHenry during the War of 1812, which, in Baltimore, mostly took place in 1814… From my new book, “The Battle of Baltimore,” written and illustrated by me.
