Kazumi Matsuoka, haiku master and vineyard owner, having witnessed a near-fatal vehicle crash on her property, learns that the young woman in the overturned van is the daughter of her friend, English professor Warren Clifton. Some of the characters we meet in the novel, Beside the River, return in this sequel to explore the reaches of their lives near the river. River’s End will immerse the reader in the struggles of drug addiction, homelessness, murder, bound in the whirlwind of climate change. It will present characters who search for friendship, love, freedom, and validation at the junction of the river and infinity.


“Just finished your excellent novel! I loved it! Specifically, I liked a lot of the characters and found them to be unique and believable. I liked the plot and the psychological thriller aspect of the novel. I liked the reference to literature and the themes brought by the English professor character. I thought the theme of drug addiction and all the challenges surrounding that for the addicted person and the family was dealt with very well. And for me it was SO exciting to read a book set in my own neighborhood. So thank you so much for the opportunity to read both of your wonderful novels!”
—Dr. Felicity A. McNichol, retired Internal Medicine MD
