    Loved his story in the new collection.

  2. I only have 91 pages remaining in Gregg Kleiner’s novel Where River Turns to Sky. I am so enjoying his writing that I Googled his name today wanting to read more from this talented author. I’m so very glad to find he has written another book and I’m looking forward to reading it as well. I know Where River Turns to Sky will be a keeper in my personal library.

    • Thank you, Mary, for reading my novel. Glad you’re enjoying it. One reader called the book her “Geriatric Fantasy.” So maybe it’s mine, too! I have a short story in THE NIGHT AND THE RAIN AND THE RIVER, a lovely anthology from the wondrous Forest Avenue Press. I’ve just published a book about climate change, for kids AND their adults, called PLEASE DON’T PAINT OUR PLANET PINK!, which you can read more about here: And there is more about my work on my website: Thanks again for being a reader! We writers would be lost (and look pretty silly) without out.

    Like Mary before me, I just finished reading Where River Turns to Sky. Borrowed this much worn, tattered novel from our local library. Just Googled Gregg Kleiner and glad to see he has another book to devour. This will be an author I will be keeping close tabs on. Thanks for the entainment…. greatly appreciated.

    • Carol, thanks so much for taking the time to comment. Gregg has a story in THE NIGHT, AND THE RAIN, AND THE RIVER, and he has a children’s book out, PLEASE DON’T PAINT OUR PLANET PINK!

    • Thanks for your enthusiasm about my writing, Carol. We writers would look pretty goofy without readers. My children’s book was just reviewed by the National Association of Science Teachers here: I have a collection of stories that touch on climate change, elders, and community; a novel set in the days immediately following 9/11 as a character drives cross-country from NYC to Oregon; and another novel about two women (one from Belize) who wind up in a small Oregon logging town during the AIDS crisis and spotted owl conflict. But publishing these has been elusive. Thanks again for YOUR words.
