Greetings from the Pacific Northwest.

Historic Jacksonville is in the beautiful Rogue Valley of southern Oregon, surrounded by mountains. It was a mid-19th century gold rush boom town, and today it is an architecturally picturesque National Historic Landmark and a great place to live.

In 2012 I co-founded Lucky Valley Press with my wife, Ginna Gordon. Together we've edited and designed nearly 80 books by 33 independent authors. We enjoy helping authors turn their ideas into books.

In 2017 I published The Little Bach Book, a unique and surprising look at everyday life in Leipzig in the early-18th-century era of J.S. Bach. There's no other book like it.

Carmel Impresarios, a book I published in 2014, tells the story of two extraordinary women who became an inspirational duo in art, music and theater, and founded the Carmel Bach Festival in 1935. With 400 pages, 300 vintage illustrations, footnoted, it's a definitive account of music and theater in the early Carmel decades.
