The Wood:

Having worked as a carpenter in the construction industry for nearly two decades, I find myself employed by Chieftain Construction, a contractor based here in Seattle. As seen from above, my function is like that of a termite, scratching away at the surface of a large rock.



The Words:

I’m the author of novel, Song of the Crow, 2006 Unbridled Books. It’s the story of the flood of Noah told from the perspective of a crow. In addition, my short stories have been published in the ‘Northwest Review’, ‘Other Voices’, ‘Mississippi Review’, and others. Song of the Crow was my first published novel, I’ve just finished my second, and I’m currently beginning other works.

In addition to writing fiction, I’m the newsletter editor for the Puget Sound Chapter of the Society of Technical Communication’s publication, sound.viewsI live with my son here in Seattle, and other interests of mine include guitar playing, birdwatching, and food. Thanks for visiting my blog!

  1. Layne I am Curating Crow/Raven events thru http://www.arteast.org in Issaquah mid-May thru mid July, 2014. Would love to have you speak. Have some funds. Please call or e-mail.
    Love SONG OF THE CROW, especially the confrontation between Raven and Crow.

  2. Layne, I just happened on your blog today. I am an author and zoologist and picked up Song of the Crow a few years ago. It remains one of my favorite books! I hope you will have more posts–and perhaps another book??
