Roaring Photo Shoot

My latest novel, Setting the Family Free, is being published by Loyola University's Apprentice House this fall. It may seem like a long time for waiting readers, but there always seems to be a lot to do between contract signing and publication date. 

Designing the book. Selecting a font. Considering formatting issues. Agreeing on matters of style. Bouncing cover concepts off one another. Soliciting reviews and blurbs. And selecting an author photo for the back.

We recently had a roaring good time with a photo shoot for the Setting the Family Free author photo. When we realized getting in a cage with a real lion or tiger was dangerous, photoshopping one in was even more problematic in its own ways, and managing to catch a good shot of a real lion in the backdrop at the zoo or a nature preserve was nearly impossible, I decided to strike a pose (or a few) at the Bayre lion statue in Baltimore's Mount Vernon Square. 

Here are some choice shots.

Setting the Family Free releases October 2019.
